I watched the teaser trailer in mid June 2015, and instantly fell in love with it – the beautiful Victorian costumes, the giant magnificent haunted mansion, the seductive Tom Hiddleston, the pure and innocent Mia Wasikowska, the gorgeous yet insanely batcrap crazy Jessica Chastain, the breath-taking cover version of “Red right hand” by PJ Harvey (I watched the trailer and listened to the song over and over again)…Ever since then I was counting down the days and hoping Oct will arrive swiftly.
Finally it released on 15 Oct 2015, I was so excited and dragged my hubby to see it with me. The film was visually stunning, the characters were wonderful to watch, but I don’t know if it was the long building up anticipation since June waiting for the movie to release has overridden its emotions or I was simply too overwhelmed by its beauty… I felt like for the love story that was portrayed in the movie – so tragic and painful. deep and twisted, extremely sad yet beautiful, I couldn’t help but found myself wanting something more.
Nevertheless, I enjoyed the movie and wouldn’t mind watching it again on DVD.
