Review: A straight forward, semi-serious, semi-comic poster design that doesn’t stretch boundaries or create an unerring desire in the viewer to see the film.

Review: There are some genuinely funny moments in the trailer, but they only arrive when Emma Thompson is on screen, which doesn’t bode well for the rest of the film, which seems to focus on Robert Carlyle’s character.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
