Agnes MacDonnell (Greta Scacchi), a strong and self-confident Englishwoman in her forties, owns a large estate on an island off the west coast of Ireland. When she begins a passionate but dangerous affair with twenty-something James Lynchehaun (Daniel Craig), her new estate manager, Agnes wages a desperate struggle to dominate this charismatic but destructive man. A tale of passion and violence in the Victorian era, LOVE and RAGE is based on the novel by James Carney. —Anonymous
Creepy, pointless movie...
1st watched 9/6/2021 - (Dir-Cathal Black): Creepy, pointless movie wasting the talent of Greta Scacchi and others. This movie starts in the present and than they look back on what happened to a wealthy landowner, played by Scacchi in an Ireland farm area. She sees a handsome newcomer at a festival, and than he starts forcing himself into her life. The man, played by Daniel Craig, is aggresively confident and this attracts Scacchi's character. They than start meeting up for a series of sexual encounters with Craig's character becoming increasingly more out of control, creepy and strange but this doesn't stop Scacchi with continuing until he rapes her under the influence of alcohol. It almost becomes like a horror movie at this point with Craig being the evil monster. This story is based on a historical book, which floors me - because the Craig character is so evil and crazy. There is not a lot to recommend in this movie, except perhaps the relationship between Scacchi and her roomie Bittie as they try to console each other, but that's about it. She has a doctor friend who also falls under the spell of Daniel Craig adding some homosexual overtones. The ending is about as crazy as the Craig character, but I will leave that to those who want to watch the movie. In my opinion, this is one to bypass.
