Tom & Viv

I enjoyed the movie.  The couple fail to use the “divinely flawed” aspect of their relationship to heal their wounds.  Painful to watch.

Though the filmmakers present ample evidence of Viv’s antisocial behavior — at one point she pulls a rubber knife on Virginia Woolf in order to steal her taxi — they never really manage to get into Tom’s mind to the extent that his motives become clear. “Tom & Viv” is a handsome, literate film in the Merchant-Ivory mode, but there’s a hole right at the center of it — right where the poet himself should be.
