And i don't like it how the relationship between Grace and James works. She loves him, has to change, while he actually stays all the same while insisting no one can ever change in the beginning. He is sort of dumb and still get's a great girl and i have no idea why a great girl should be happy with such an ignorant selfish man. Actually totally unimportant to the main story but because the movie focused often long on subplots it's getting worse the longer i think about it.
