It's trailer made me very curious, enjoyed it.
26 June 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I was very intrigued about this film once I happened to watch its trailer because the trailer didn't give away anything at all about the film. It only showed Colin Firth sitting on a bed, fidgety. It was a good trailer indeed, it did its job of arousing my curiosity. The film works similarly. There is a feeling of anticipation and the unknown right from the point when Steve (Colin Firth) makes his first appearance in the home of a married couple (Keira Knightley and Tom Mison). It's obvious from Steve's rather early and desperate attempts at making friendly conversation ("Do you like picnics?" or "What are your top 5 favourite films?") that he is a lonely man. It's interesting to watch how Steve's lack of company and frustration play out together. The acting is very good, both Keira Knightley as well as Colin Firth. At times it feels as though Knightley is singing out her dialogues, I find that distracting. Steve has a (mildly) thrilling undertone, I enjoyed it.
