I saw it last night and it was an entertaining movie! Love Tilda. Thought the end bit with Zane was lame-a-licious.
I was hoping they'd handle the sex-change a bit more starkly, more viscerally. But then I remember in the book being surprised by it too. I was thinking it might have worked better with two different (but similar-looking) actors - but that would have been hard to arrange.
Thought the Russian bit - and the Thames bit - was very nicely done. And overall, loved the approach. Just wish they'd ended in 1920's Bloomsbury with the literateurs.
