The acting and the camera were somewhere between good and breathtaking. All the actors did a marvellous job (although I couldnt figure out why the chose Guy Pearce - maybe from a historical resemblance - he seems way younger than Firth)
It somehow caught on the hype wave for the oscars, and ... why not? There have been many (!) considerations for the trophy that were much worse...
About the camera: the use of either extreme wide angle and tele was quite refreshing. And the lighting was superb in many of the images.
