Ever watched a film only to double take when the director’s name appears in the credits? Such a thing happened to me after watching Lay The Favourite, as the name Stephen Frears, who many of us would respect, crawled onto the screen. This is the man who has brought us a range of memorable films such as High Fidelity (2000), The Queen (2006), and Dirty Pretty Things (2002). How he managed to become attached to this lifeless picture is anyone’s guess. Even more remarkable is that he isn’t alone. There’s a fairly respectable cast to work with and a screenplay from one of the co-writers of High Fidelity (2000) and Grosse Pointe Blank (1997).

Oh well, shit happens, and sometimes the act of shitting can be painful. »
