"Charles Dance is well cast as Arlington, a troubled, searching soul, whose paradise is populated with intriguing figures. Harriet Walter beautifully represents the woman with the grave, pale face and dreamy eyes of Wells's story while Dudley Sutton's character, Henry the gardener, is delightfully nutty.....In The Door, the office scenes are a steel blue, and contrast with the inviting softer shades of Arlington's flashbacks, but the connection is not explicitly made. The pulse of Jools Scott's bewitching score underlines the cyclical nature of the narrative. A fitting tribute to Wells's story, the film is a poignant comment on the tension between public persona and inner nature." TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT (January 27th, 2012)
