One of the best films of last five years, Danes performance is extraordinary
Piece of trash! This will likely tarnish the careers of the actors involved, it was such garbage.
Horrendous. I don`t know which was worse, the script or the direction. The actors were okay, except that their British accents (Crudup and Danes) kept slipping between upperclass British to lower class British. Weren`t there any actual Brits who could`ve played these roles? And Danes alternated between two expressions -- "Oh, so concerned and distressed" and haughty. Too bad, I thought the premise had potential but it was poorly executed.
The performances and portrayal of such historical figures were beautifully done and undeniably excellent. I was enthralled by the performers yet the direction and script were weak.
Wonderfully acted movie!
this movie was amazing ... 5 stars!!!!!!!!!
What a fantastic movie! Best we have seen in a long time. Billy Crudip is a beautiful woman and an even better looking man. He and Clare Danes have great chemistry. Rupert Everett was amazing as King Charles and Tom Wilkinson gives another excellent perfomance. Wonderful scenery and we thoroughly enjoyed the story line. Oscar worthy!
This was a beautifully acted movie with a fascinatingly acted main character and great ensemble cast. It has many dimensions, kind of puts a lot of movies to shame. Sexy too!
