Rating = B

This is a fine film about Darwin's later years, when he is struggling with whether or not to publish his book on On the Origin of Species. The acting, especially by Paul Bettany as Darwin, is fine. Having Jennifer Connolly in the role of Emma Darwin helps helps the viewer empathize with Charles Darwin wanting to marry his first cousin and being reluctant to make her unhappy.
