I just couldn’t take my eyes off Barbara’s roots. They were mesmerizing. Is that what I look like myself? Well, not Julia Roberts of course, I mean a bitter woman with grey roots.
All the rest was excellent acting. It was that good old feeling of sitting down and enjoying two hours of excellent acting, like we used to do, when summer nights were too warm and too long and there was no internet and nowhere to go (without a driving license).
It’s a depressing film though. You will need something to cheer you up afterwards and I think this clip of Meryl Streep mocking Cumberbatch for being a toff does the job.
(don’t worry Benedict, we still love you)
