Even though the actresses are obviously top of the industry, which we all know already, the writing and directing are plain awful. Good story telling unfolds information to help us learn the characters, what challenges they are facing, how they are overcoming them... so we relate to them, we feel moved by them. In Ammonite, the characters do reveal themselves - only in an extremely slow pace with very abrupt transitions, which align with the fact that most of the events were redundant in terms of telling us who these characters are and they end up, OF COURSE, flat and UNRELATABLE which made this supposably profound, romantic movie between 2 beautiful women with rich backgrounds NOT. MOVING!🙄 (Didn’t think it was even possible!)
Winslet and Ronan were stunning. What a waste of talent, and our time.
