Fans of Patricia Highsmith beware!

The makers of this plotty, glossy thriller have based their work on an excellent, dark novel by Patricia Highsmith. Unfortunately, the movie doesn't even come close to representing Highsmith's carefully constructed murky little world. The main problem - apart from the over-egged art direction and false, icon-ridden recreation of the mid-1950s - is the characterisations. In Highsmith's original, the main character of Walter (Patrick Wilson, on good form) and his relationship with his neurotic wife, Clara (Jessica Biel, lost) is complex and fascinating. As is the relationship between Walter and his new amour, Ellie (in the book she's a modest, sincere music teacher; in the movie she's a phoney hipster, singer). The movie relationships are diluted to the simplest terms, as though this were a trailer for what they could be. The most sinister character ( well-portrayed by Eddie Marsan), Walter Kimmel, is simply sinister without any exploration of his relationships with anyone else or his view of the world. Most of Highsmith's plot is intact, but rather than moan on about this travesty, I suggest you read the book, "The Blunderer", it's excellent on so many levels.

Marsan is Great

Eddie Marsan is great, as always. Jessica Biel is miscast. Storyline is disjointed and far fetched. I would say this is 1958 or 1959 - not the 60's as stated in the synopsis. Patrick Wilson tries hard to make it all believable but it's not enough to carry the film.

A good watch on Netflix.....knocked two points because it's so slooow

Those who gave really negative reviews, did you actually watch the movie? Or pay attention?

None of the events are real. He's a writer. You are watching the story he's typing. There are hints throughout the entire movie. Like every time it shows him sitting at the type writer. Read the words he is typing. It's a dead giveaway at the end, the final scene he types "The End"

I will admit that the movie is painfully slow. Like watching paint dry, slow. There's just not enough action. I found myself getting bored and my mind wandering easily. Still, I got enough of it to figure out it's his book.
