elegant, sentimental, great clothes
24 November 2000 | by N G ASee all my reviews

I was surprised by the low vote average for this movie. I

found the plot absorbing and not without charm. Anne Bancroft, Sean Penn, Derek Jakobi...these are actors that I

live to see perform together.

Usually Kristin Scott Thomas is not my cuppa tea. She's

certainly cast according to type and turns out an immaculate performance. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed watching her fine, slim,erect, long-necked, doe-eyed, ultimately British performance. She possesses

an irrefutably neat intelligence which one regards with only

a very a slight feeling of protest.
