Who says there are no good roles for women? Annette Bening has been making some very interesting choices of late, and coming back out of the shadows. And Jamie Bell is a marvelous match for her. Who knew Billy Elliot would group up to be so delicious! Based on Gloria Grahame’s life, there are wonderful subtle notes for actors. And direction was fabulous, marrying the whimsy of film with that of stage without being overt. While I really enjoyed this, it’s probably more of either and actors film or a girls movie. For that reason, can’t quite call it date night. Wonderful night in with a glass of wine and hankies.
