They are all very pretty. But I think I liked better looking at the actors as they were in the interviews, which were from 2004 or so.
I think this will reward further watching! This was Graves' second film, and he seems really, really young in it. Weirdly, he seems younger to me than in the bits of A Room With a View that I've seen (I never saw it all the way through, either). Maybe because in the one, he's clearly a boy, but in the other, he's a young man, not entirely formed yet. I especially loved his body language - I almost didn't need to hear his words, or at least most of them. Best scene: Alec and Maurice under an umbrella.
Hugh Grant played...it felt like the same character he always plays, except not straight. It was right for the movie, though.
I was impressed with James Whilby, particularly towards the end; you could see his character developing a spine as he accepted himself. Something in the muscles of the face? His posture? I never saw "Foyle's War" but am now a tad curious.
Ben Kingsley must never try to do an American accent like that again. Please. Don't make him. *whimper* I might have had nightmares.
ETA: Forgot to mention, bonus use of Allegri's "Miserere." Which totally threw me out of the story because I've performed it, but that's not the movie's fault.
