Thank You, Mr. Nunn, 4 Aug 2003
This is an Oklahoma for the ages, a complete version (with songs normally deleted restored) featuring a brilliant cast and outstanding direction.
Hugh Jackman was a particular revelation and absolutely perfect in the role of Curly. One almost regrets his film success -- he was born for the musical stage.
This is more than just a filmed stage performance. It is in fact a film using the cast and sets of the stage version. Because of the multiple cameras and their flexible placement, the viewer is treated to unique viewing angles and intimate close-ups.
If only more of the great musicals could be memorialized in this fashion.
