Rated “PG-13”
Runtime- 108 min.
dir. Jon Amiel
 

Alright, time for another quick burst of posts before I get busy again.

Story/Writing: 1.5/2

Creation details the life and times of Charles Darwin, specifically around the time he wrote On the Origin of Species.

Acting: 1.5/2

All of the adult leads are really good, especially Paul Bettany as Darwin and Jennifer Connelly as his wife, Emma.

Photography/Set: 1.5/2

The hospital and church scenes manage to pull the setting away from the boring country manor long enough to make it interesting.

Sound/FX: 1.5/2

Good enough.

Misc: 1/2

Probably too informative if you’re a fan of Darwin, and not enough if you’re a newbie.  Also, the line walked between historical fact and fiction is very thin.

VERDICT: 7/10

Meh.  A very well acted historical art piece.
