A disappointment, but thank goodness for that cast…
Tag: Saoirse Ronan
Also: Beverly Hills Cop 4 gets returning cast members, Nick Frost and Lena Headey reunite, and Saoirse Ronan signs up for a WWII epic….
Ignores genuinely interesting details in favour of scandal and melodrama, as well as annoying thinly-veiled social commentary.
An insipid period drama that plays out as though Robert Altman were adapting ‘The Bold and the Beautiful’.
Even the usually reliable Ronan can’t help the confounding writing and directorial choices on display here.
Gerwig’s first feature as solo writer-director is an assured piece of filmmaking, with Saoirse Ronan in pitch-perfect form.
A friendly and enjoyable experience, even if it does miss its biggest mark.
