A gentle and prettily appointed romantic tragedy with likeable performances; but there's a stultifying blandness to proceedings and an implausible final act.

Despite the hefty talent involved, there's a preposterous pass-agg tweeness to this film - a contrived and self-conscious affair adapted from Fiona Shaw's 2009 novel and directed by Annabel Jankel.

Paquin... and especially Grainger shoulder the film's dramatic burdens with grace and ease... But the unassumingly square and overly familiar film simply isn't the buzzworthy vehicle their work deserves.

Paquin and Grainger are likable together, and the film's exploration of womanhood as an identity often dictated by men is handled effectively.

Race, sexuality and masculinity are all touched on in a successful attempt to reflect the bigger picture of an era in which the slightest transgression could be met by the harshest of punishments.
