Olivier Assayas's film on the aftermath of May 1968 is infantile ultra-leftism
LIKE I say, I get around. Sometimes, though, I even surprise myself.
ENO's production of La Boheme is a triumph,
Glenn Close and Jane McTeer¹s Oscar-nominated performances as two women posing as men in 19th-century Ireland that make this costume drama set in a lavish Dublin hotel worth seeing.
After 30 years Close has reprised her award-winning off-Broadway role of Albert Nobbs in which she masquerades as a man in order to survive.
Close looks positively creepy as hotel butler Nobbs, who she plays as a rather restrained but well-meaning individual who is blown away by McTeer¹s carefree joie de vivre.
Produced and co-written by Close it is an odd but predictable film which may appeal to the Downton Abbey brigade.
