I have been conned into seeing this film (usually I give Knightley and wide berth and order marksman to shoot Sienna Miller) but I'm off to see it when it comes out so I watched the trailer for an idea of how the story I sort of know already is played out.
Basic plot: Keira Knightley plays a woman that once had a fling with Dylan Thomas, who marries Caitlin (played sadly by Sienna Miller). Knightley marries Cillian Murphy, they all meet up, her and Miller make friends, her and Dylan Thomas have an affair and Murphy goes apeshit towards the end of it. It takes place during the war and in Wales.
Points raised: The voices come from the Dick Van Dyke School of Accents. Will Knightley ever not do a period film? Parts of it get a bit Gavin and Stacey. Cillian Murphy does apeshit very well. I'm hoping they picked the worst dialogue for the trailer because some of it made me want to bite my own wrists off.
Of course the guy who plays Ron Weasley is a drunk. He's probably accquainted with some of the best skips in Blackpool the amount of times he's woken up in one surrounded by empty vodka bottles and covered in his own vomit.
