Enduring Love

Don't let this film title fool you, it's not a romantic, comedy, or romantic comedy.  Eric and I first watched this film on our honeymoon six years ago.  We didn't know anything about it, only the title.  We were most definitely taken by surprise.  Despite not being what we were expecting, the film is very captivating.  Daniel Craig and Rhys Ifans experience a traumatic experience, although they didn't know each other and it was never supposed to happen.  As they are trying to cope with what happened, what they each took from the experience is revealed and they are very different.

You wouldn't guess it, but the film is a drama and psychological thriller.  The hardest part for me was seeing Rhys Ifans in this role.  Up until this film, he had always been the quirky roommate in Notting Hill.

When we watched this film again, everyone thought Daniel Craig didn't look like himself.  I was the only one who disagreed.
