Still lovely actress, lovely little film
on 12 May 2013
Fittingly Jean Simmons returned to the UK for this affecting unassuming chamber-piece and I am so glad she appeared in it. This was her last film, and she hadn't done one of significance for years, until now. It contains one of her warmest and most affectionate of performances and reminds us what a treasure she always has been to watch regardless of how good (or not) the movie was, and in latter years made an impression in TV dramas too (e.g. "The Thorn Birds" which also starred Richard Chamberlain, Rachel Ward and Barbara Stanwyck). "Shadows" should be on BBC television sometime seeing that cinemas failed to have it on general release.
