Teh play magically transferred to screen
on 2 April 2017
A wonderful play re-imagined for film in a really exciting and inventive way. It retains much of the text, and all of the quirky charm of the play. It is lively, happy and carefree. Rupert Everett is superb . Colin Firth wonderful as always. Judi Dench works hard and the prudish miss Prism is played by Anna Massey with understated characterful comic élan. The big female stars try very hard and succeed in winning over the men. A ROMP!
The odd re-write and omission, together with scenes transposed and distributed between settings, may disturb those who know the play well, but as a film it is a pleasure.
