I saw 'The Danish Girl' today. It was very beautiful and very moving. Do see it!
It's on my list!
The review in the Grauniad panned it and said Eddie was overacting something chronic.
Am going tonight !!
I pay no attention whatever to reviews. And the Grauniad is a paper I loathe.
Also panned on a few Radio 4 shows. Not for me.
(I, being a Leftie luvvie, adore the Guardian, of course!)
I'm a leftie, but I also loathe the Guardian. :- )
I find Eddie Redmayne a bit earnest and precious. Like he's trying too hard. I can see why he'd be absolutely right for that role.
I'd quite like to take my daughters but one of them is 11 so could take her according to the 12A rating but would appreciate it if anyone could let me know if there's anything unsuitable. She's bright and mature for her age.
The film is rated 15. I certainly wouldn't take an 11 year old to it.
Oh, I must've misread the rating! I'll go on my own then.
I'll have towait for it to come on TV
as is usually my only viable option
I have seen extensive trailers and it just looks so MOODY. I'm going to add 'morose' to this evaluation of Eddie.
I might have to shout something. Probably, "Buck your ideas up, you wet lettuce!" This would spoil the film for other punters, I feel. Better that I stay away.
I've just never been tempted to go and watch films like that.
Eddie Redmayne got lots of plaudits for that film about Steven Hawking the other year and it was great PR for both of them but Hawking is and was a total ********* in real life.
I didn't like the film and I didn't like Eddie Redmayne in it.
He certainly came across like that in the snippet of The Graham Norton show I was unfortunate enough to catch while hopping between channels. I know pretty much all the guests are plugging something or other but still he was ultra-annoying.
He was amazing in Birdsong, though.
Lots of people are. That doesn't detract from his immense intellect and his indomitable will, though.
He has been a very sick man for a very long time, whilst retaining his great intellect. I'm not sure how many of us could avoid being tetchy under such circumstances.
My friend's son is a post-grad in Maths at Cambridge and has an astonishing aptitude. Prof Hawking has taken to being around at the end of his lectures sometimes. Friend's son, who has Asperger's and lacks the social constraints of the non-affected, asked him outright if he was keeping an eye on him because he was going to have his job one day. Prof Hawking laughed and said: "So I've heard!" Nothing of the ******** about him in that context.
