We imagine that love is meaningful. But, could it in fact be... meaningless?

Enduring Love (2004)
Chosen by Lauren Parker who had this to say about it: 'What a surprise that the book is far superior to the film in so many ways, what is a great book is made into an extremely average film. I only gave it to you because I know you're in love with Daniel Craig!'

A dull, miscast take on the crazy stalker trope. Ifans is horrid and Craig, as good as he is, is saddled with a dull idiot (without the crazy stalker angle this may have been an interesting look at failing to be a hero and the effects of grief) of a character.
Ifans' stalker is so slight and sketchy that he never really registers as a threat making the whole film inert.
Like most of these annoying stalker movies it's an ever so terribly middle class family being invaded by a lower class.
