The Heart of Me (2002) short review

Helena Bonham Carter and Olivia Williams star as sisters in 1930s London who love the same man (Paul Bettany). The first part does a good job exploring the love triangle, and Williams especially has some great dresses and hairstyles. The second half gets a bit TOO tragic and over the top. Still, worth a rental.
