It never quite happened for Joseph Fiennes after Shakespeare in Love, did it.

Last thing I saw him in was the TV show FlashForward, which was shocking.

I agree about the book, but I understand changes have been made for the film (hopefully regarding the book's badly-fudged denouement).

That trailer is rather meh though. Fincher's trademark gloomy...

A best-selling book....young love...cancer...suffering etc. Blimey, there's some heavyweight box-ticking going on here.

Is there a 'life message' and some sad piano at the end by any chance?

Depends how it's done. Bottom, Miranda and House of Fools all had elements of slapstick, sitcom and throwback, yet all seemed more contemporary.

Is that so?

Laurel & Hardy are 'old fashioned slapstick' and are on a pedestal so high it's out of sight. And rightly so.
