PERFECT! Or as close to perfection as you can get. Beautifully written and executed, this movie will keep you on the edge of your seats till the very very end.
The performances especially by the lead Jonathan Rhys-Meyers is top notch. He plays an ex-tennis pro barely making a living being a tennis coach. A marriage to a girl of a very wealthy family (Emily Mortimer) followed with an affair with a very hot Scarlett Johansson, causes our hero to make a life altering decision. And the repercussions of this will keep you glued to your seat and thouroughly entertained. For all those who want to understand our hero a little better, try and get hold of Dostoyevsky?s Crime and Punishment and give it a od read before you watch the movie.
All and all, BRILLIANT movie and a must watch. 5 stars all the way.
