One Worth Finding and Watching
Sadly, some of Colin Firth's best work is hard-to-impossible-to-find in any format. This is one such film and it is such an exceptional piece of work on all levels. It needs to see the light of day on DVD.

The cast is wonderfully realized by all involved. Ditto the plot with a head-turner of a twist ending.

Firth is such an amazing actor and nuance is extremely important to this film. He succeeds in this, but it is no surprise if one has seen any of his earlier, also sometimes obscure, work. He conveys more in a look than most actors can in dialog and over-the-top emoting.

I will have to add to these comments kudos to the exceptional Katy Murphy who shares the spotlight with Firth at the center of this story.

This is a modern day telling of the Don Quixote story, but also much more. It is also about triumph and will and, ultimately, great poignancy.

I would recommend seeing this film if at all possible, if it can be found. Firth was and is such a versatile actor, long before he became a leading man. Tumbledown, Hostages, A Month in the Country, Donovan Quick -- must-see films if you truly want to see the range of the man who has since received the accolades for being the actor he always was.
