    Woo Hoo! I can not wait to see this new film. Natalia Vodianova is a stunner and the two of them together should have great chemistry. Mmmm romance, beautiful locations what more could we want for a movie with Jonny in it?

    This is definitely my favorite type of movie, period dramas, and Jonny does them best. I’m very happy he’s getting back to the work he loves and it proves that there is life after The Tudors.
