I've been writing about this film, Sylvia, for a few days now, and I still don't know what I think about it. It seems to elicit contradictory responses from me. It is beautifully made and shot, yet seems to, at times, represent an overly simplistic idea of love, desire and indeed, the creative process. But it also has a type of modesty and generosity of spirit to it, which I don't often encounter in films about authors. I just don't know. So rather than trying to tell you what I think about it, I'm interested to hear your opinions. Has anyone seen it, and if so, what did you think?
