Yes, yes.. I admit I’m a bit behind, not having watched this until now, but come on; I was busy having a kid! =P
I bought this film on Blu-ray shortly after it had come out in Denmark, I just never got around to watching it. Mostly because I haven’t had the desire to sit down and try to watch something new, with a baby crawling around the floor, disturbing me; and I didn’t think it would be fair to the film, to not give it my full attention. So home alone, with the flu on a Monday, I finally sat down and watched it. And oh my bloody God, was it good!
This “type” of film is just so me (honestly, who am I kidding; every film is just so me)! And when it has Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter in the leading roles, even more so! =)
Everything about this film was just so fantastically well executed! The costumes, the sets, the acting in particular – Oscar, Mr Firth, Oscar.. no wonder you got it; just saying!
By the way, if no one (if anyone even reads these?!) has noticed; with every review I make a “customized” .gif for the film =P ..oh yes, I am such a low-life that I had to mention this little fact.
