2 out of 10 Hilarious - intentional?
Joanne from Dublin, 11 Mar 2010
Totally over the top - Romola Garai completely overacts and the story is ludicrous but it looks gorgeous and if you want some frothy silliness and don't take it too seriously you could actually enjoy it. In parts it is quite funny - Angel is like Scarlett O'Hara times twenty. I don't think anyone making this took the story very seriously - well, I hope not. Story based on an Elizabeth Taylor novel so if that's your thing...... Or just watch it and laugh. Michael Fassbender is also there so worth

2.5 out of 10 Strange Angel!
Lyn from Cork, 07 Dec 2009
Although this has really great actors, locations and sets it was directed by a Frenchman in that art-house way which just leaves me pretty cold. It got better towards the end and I can see it's supposed to be a black comedy, however I felt very little for the anti-heroine at all. It would be better after a second viewing. The great thing about it was the location work at Tyntesfield in the UK, a National Trust Victorian property rescued from decay, even Madona thought about buying it!

2 out of 10 Looks beautiful, shame about the acting!
Anne Marie from Wicklow, 23 Dec 2009
I had high hopes for this as I have loved Francois Ozon's other films but this is a mess. The storyline is jumpy, Romola Garai overacts horribly and Michael Fassbender seems to be trying to channel the dastardly fiance from Titanic. On the positive side it looks gorgeous; great costumes and sets all in lush, rich, Edwardian colours.

1.5 out of 10 A Miss
John from Donegal, 04 Feb 2010
A precocious young writer becomes famous by penning 'romances' and escapes her poor background. I could not find one thing to like about this film, the dialogue, sets, acting. Managed to watch till the end to see if it was meant to be in some way ironic, but alas, it was not to be.

2.5 out of 10 Different!!
isobel from Dublin, 23 Sep 2010
Dont know what to make of this film. The main character makes her dreams come true but is so used to living in the dream that when reality hits she cant deal with it.

What's it about....
Set in Edwardian England, it traces the career of would–be novelist Angel Deverell (Romola Garai), whose blithe innocence of the ways of the world doesn‘t stop her pen from spilling forth torrid romantic fantasies. Angel‘s literary career is a runaway success, and wealth, fame and love come her way, but the one thing that continues to evade Angel is happiness. "Angel" is an epic period drama set against the backdrop of the First World War, created with love in the manner...
