Based on a true story, this is definitely a low key non-action movie. It moves along slowly, but doesn't get bogged down. There's nothing outstanding, but nothing disappointing about it either. A good time waster with a nice story. 8/10

They added a completely unnecessary love drama involving homosexuality as a filler. Carey Mulligan and Ralph Fiennes are great.

The Dig reminded me of another movie about archaeology and which was not only also based on a true story but also involved a woman’s contribution to that scientific field. That other movie was Ammonite, about a woman archaeologist in a time when women were more than rare in that field of endeavor. More
