Odd story with a twist. Really had it figured out in the first 20 minutes. Hopkins is great.

Overall, a pretty good film however it's better enjoyed if you don't over-analyze or ask logical questions as the film progresses. My view contradicts one stated in the film: had Hopkin's character revealed his true race, this would have proven he had racist views, and would have supported the student's allegations.

Worth a watch. Only Kidman and Hopkins' good acting made the May/December romance work.

Anthony Hopkins excels in any film he's in, regardless of its caliber or content. This was good; not staggering, but good. Different. His ethnicity issue just didn't feel entirely believable, nor did his May/December relationship with Kidman.

This movie is phenomenal! Anthony Hopkins and Nicole Kidman are two broken people who start a relationship. Unbelievably good!

An interesting love story/thriller. Hopkins is great as the professor who hides and denies his background to become more acceptable in society.

Anthony Hopkins and Nicole Kidman deliver their best in this film based on the novel by Philip Roth. It has many levels and surprises as the story unfolds. You will be well rewarded for watching.
