Doctor Zhivago Reviews
Hans Matheson is a rising star, for sure. He played his role so well it's hard to believe he's still so unknown. As for the story itself - I'm usually not into history and things but the exciting and brilliant plot draws you in. It is fantastically depicted and imaginatively filmed.
I loved it.
Keira Knightley does a terrific job. Hans Matheson has moments of over-acting, but is still adequate. And Sam Neill is appropriately arrogant and villainous. Though this film has a greater sense of realism than the original, it lacks the original's sheer visual beauty. Nonetheless, this is a well-made, emotionally stirring remake.
