Just watched it on Netflix with Mrs DL.
Tedious, slow moving, depressing nowt-much of a film - telling the 'story' [such as it is] of a fellah who gets the Nobel Award for Literature although it's his Mrs who really writes the books - not really saved by two very good performances from the leads. Based on a successful novel, apparently. What a fucking great read that must have been.
Fucking hell, literally just finished watching this with my mrs.
I thought it was alright/rather good. It took a decent stab at exploring the motivations and flaws in both characters, not entirely successfully. Not read the book.
Kudos on use of the spoiler function!
The part about the Mrs writing the books was freely mentioned in every review I came across, so I knew that and assumed everyone else would too.
