Run Time: 1 hour 52 minutes
Director: Simon Stone
Leading cast members: Carey Mulligan, Ralph Fiennes, Lily James
Screenplay: Moira Buffini, John Preston
Reviewer: Russell Minter

Found this little gem when looking for something to watch one evening.
A film about an archeologist may not sound intriguing but the wonderful cast make this historical drama a beautiful character study. The events occur in 1938 around the outbreak of World War ll, which becomes a character in itself and requires no knowledge of archaeology or of this discovery to enjoy. The performances are confident and convincing with wonderful emotional depth. A simple story, beautifully filmed, well written, perfectly cast poignant film.
