This is like the scary, sexy, sad French version of "Vertigo" without the albino. What's that? You're saying Kim Novak wasn't playing an albino? That she was just preternaturally WHITE? That's weird. But I like Kristin Scott Thomas better anyway. She is ein rock star. What's that? German and not French? Dammit.
Maybe you have to love Kristin Scott Thomas already, but I loved her. She has a face for the stage, and the presence, and is just the right kind of cerebral and catty and chilly and, you know, a little bit crazy. And Zoe Kazan broke my heart most of all, I think, just for the trying, and surviving, although after a while I wondered how a person could cry that much onstage and still keep their eyes open. It got a little distracting. Carey Mulligan was sweetly, charmingly bratty, and I wanted to follow Mackenzie Crook right out the door after I finished slapping him in the face. Emotional whiplash! I was dazzled.
