Since the other thread will probably be turned into a discussion thread...... Neil LaBute's Possession is an extremely entertaining romantic drama. It is a welcome and refreshing change of pace amid the all too typical summer fare. Without spoiling any of the film's wonderful moments, Possession is a dual love story and mystery rolled into one. The great thing is that both love stories and the mystery work without feeling contrived or familiar. I especially liked the juxtaposition between the two love stories and how they interacted. The film moves at a leisurely pace to be sure, but is never dull or plodding. Each scene flowed nicely into the next and I found myself completely wrapped up in the stories the film was telling. It was smart, engrossing and completely entertaining. The performances were all very good, especially Aaron Eckhart as Roland Mitchell, Gwyneth Paltrow as Maud Bailey, Jeremy Northam as Randolph Henry Ash, and Jennifer Ehle as Christabel LaMotte, very convincing as a Victorian-era female. The chemistry between both couples was completely believable. I am not too familiar with Mr. LaBute's earlier works, only having seen Nurse Betty which I enjoyed very much. But having heard much about Your Friends And Neighbors and In The Company Of Men, it seems as though Mr LaBute is very capable of handling different genres. Highly Recommended.
