Purefoy at his best!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beau Brummell: This Charming Man [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
A wonderful Regency story of the life of Beau Brummel. Having read a biography of his life, the film has left out most of the really 'unsavoury' aspects of his life, but a fascinating character, and SO well played by the beautiful James Purefoy, a role made for him in my opinion. Purefoy manages to portray Brummell's manliness with just enough of his questionable bi-sexuality to leave us guessing.I found the film quite funny in parts and Beau's servant, excellently played by Phil Davies, is wonderfully acted. Definitely a must see. Shame it's only on Region.1 and that you need a multi-region player to watch it.
