Twitter Capsule: Poster blurb: less excruciating than opening scenes imply. Soon settles into dutiful, sporadically poignant clichés.

VOR:   Some viewers will have heard versions of this story more often than others. There's value in re-telling it, though little if anything is notable about the execution. Klimt it isn't.
