I really love Emma Thompson and I have always enjoyed her films. Stanley Tucci is one of the recent favorites, he's really good actor. However, this film - for me - left a lot to be desired. To be honest, after watching the film, I thought the trailer was much better than the feature itself.
The film starts really good but around the half it takes a nosedive. So much so, that by the end I couldn't wait for it to end. I thought that nothing on this movie was really developed and characters are kinda bland and flat. Also, there are plot holes which I won't go into, because I don't want to make spoilers. However, if you think about the plot at all, you have to wonder how or why certain situations came to be. You have to wonder because nothing was explained, they were sort of just planted into the film and left like that. All in all, let's just say it had a potential, but failed in almost every area that counts.
On the plus side, Emma Thompson's acting was amazing, as usual. Unfortunately, Stanley Tucci has maybe 10 minutes on screen, which is a shame.
Also, Fionn Whitehead is perfect for horrors and psychological thrillers. The creepiness of his gaze really made an impression on me.
