Review of 'Swept from the Sea'

Period drama in which a lot of top-notch English actors spend a lot of time looking out to sea with moody expressions. A bit long and boring really, despite nice shooting and acting. Rachel Weisz barely has a speaking part, though she looks as gorgeous as ever.

Redeemed somewhat by the fact that it's about English hostility to an immigrant of impeccable manners and hard work - although he's a good guy he'll never be accepted by the locals. Based on a short story by Joseph Conrad, who manages to seem very contemporary so often.

Watched on Amazon Prime directly on the Smart TV.
