Master and Commander: the Far Side of the World (2003) short review


Not only a great, exciting, adventurous story with engaging characters and relationships, but incredibly gritty, realistic, as darn near 100% historically accurate costumes, props, art direction, set design, etc.  All boys, though.  Pity!

    Watching it now. It was my dad’s favorite film, and it has Russel Crowe in it, so I’ll make due with just boys :-)
