Morning Glory [DVD] <b>DVD</b> ~ Rachel McAdams
Morning Glory [DVD] DVD ~ Rachel McAdams
Rachel McAdams stars as the energetic Becky, who works too many hours, with workaholic tendencies in a TV studio. Desperate for a job, she leaps at the chance of directing a morning show which has been struggling in the ratingsÖ

Diane Keaton is brilliant as a loyal but anchor of the show, while Harrison Ford is a wonderfully grumpy curmudgeon who gradually finds himself thawing despite himself. A totally different role from his usual ones, and he shows himself a fine actor in the process.

She eventually figures out what her article is about - I suddenly realised what it was, myself, a few pages before itís… Read more
