Slow to start but worth the journeyBy a customer from Guildford , 23 Jul 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]With such a cast and script writer, this has to be a strong film - and it is. After 30 minutes we considered switching it off as it was very slow to develop but I think it is worth seeing through to the end. Fine, fine acting.
A Bio Pic with UMPH!!By OscarFreak (487 reviews) from London , 19 Dec 2012Great acting from a cast that could hardly be bettered, wonderful scenery and the sets / costumes were in tune with the time frame of the film. I am so pleased that I took the chance to hire the film and can recommend it whole heartedly to anyone with an interest in the lead characters or the Bio Pic genre.
Worth watchingBy a customer from Yorkshire , 25 Apr 2008This is an interesting film about Lawrence, with a good turn by Ian McKellen. Perhaps it would be worth knowing something about his background first, before you watch, as the film makes one or two assumptions about the knowledge of the viewer.
Great but tragicBy Andy Miles from Leicester, England , 14 Jul 2006This is not the sort of DVD you would watch if you just wanted a pleasant evening in. The film is biographical, and so not a story as such, and like all biographies there has to be some interest in and or admiration for the subject of the biography to get something from it.
I have long been a great Lawrence fan, and so the film was a 'must watch' for me. Like many great artists before him, he was treated rather shabbily by society and life, and his untimely death was a huge tragedy. One can't help but wonder how much more he might have achieved with a little more appreciation in his lifetime, and a longer lifetime to enjoy.
