Really not my ort of film but i really enjoyed it!
Saw 127 Hrs last night as well. That is also pretty good. Better then i expected.
I thought 127 would be like PhoneBooth - a man stuck in a Phone booth/Crevice for 2 hrs.
I saw this in the Peckham Multiplex last Thursday night with a friend. Apart from being stuck in Peckham trying to get buses back to Streatham in the middle of the night - it was well worth seeing.
Some ‘poetic license’ in terms of storyline and I am sure that King Edward and Wallis were not quite so unpleasant in reality, but excellent performances all round - especially Colin Firth - who deserves all the ‘best actor’ accolades.
Well worth seeing - but doesn’t beat some of my favourite ‘all time’ films such as Shooting Dogs (John Hurt / Rwanda) and Constant Gardner (Ralph Fiennes / Rachel Weisz) and even the wonderful Colin did not quite match up to Omar Sharif in Dr Zhivago …
