My spouse liked this a bit more than I did, so maybe it just wasn't as much in my taste. I found it overly long and dragging in places. Also a bit too idealized. Then I found out it's from a novel, though the author used Fawcett's diaries for much of his research (that explains the idealism). The acting was pretty good; didn't even recognize Pattinson (which means he did a great job). Some beautiful scenery and direction seemed fine.
