This is actually a four star movie that only drops to a 3 star because of the pull the rug out ending, but it is still a movie NOT TO BE MISSED that is way better than most of the garbage out there. In actual movie reviews, 3 stars is very solid and 4 stars is cream of the crop, 5 stars is once in a blue moon. But most Amazon reviews are 5 star/1 star. I'm giving it 5 Amazon stars here to pull it back up from the wrong-headed reviews some of the other Amazon reviewers have posted. This is quality stuff. I was thoroughly engaged throughout and although I didn't like the ending, I expect I'll like it better than Ibsen's original ending. Or if it's the same in the play then I'll have to forgive the filmmakers for just staying true to the source. I definitely plan to listen to the play now (The Wild Duck by Henrik Ibsen, available free from Librivox.org, or 6 bucks from Audible.) I was very pleasantly surprised by this movie because I went into it with no expectations really. Very nice acting, complicated performances, organic adaptation of a play from 1884 to contemporary times.
