I’m going to be honest here. This was just okay. The film had charming moments, but it was slightly melodramatic and maudlin for my taste. I felt like I was in some sort of old fashioned movie where reality is checked at the door. The sets seemed fake, the relationships over the top, and the only thing that was missing was the affected speech.
This was a film about women in the film industry during WWII. But the story seemed to be more focused on the lead character’s love life than her impact on film making.
Some will like the old fashioned style of movie making. It’s got some great people in the film including Bill Nighey who is great in everything.
Probably not one you’d seek out at the threatre but a good one to watch on Netflix some day.
