A great movie as relevant today as when the play was written
18 April 2000 | by (Athens, Greece) – See all my reviews

"Look back in Anger" is one of the most celebrated plays of modern drama. It is rightfully regarded as a milestone in english theater. This movie does justice to it. Academy Award winner Judi Dench does a wonderful job directing this play. She gets a lot of help from a wonderful cast though. Kenneth Branagh is outstanding as Jimmy. He really brings the character to life. Emma Thompson also delivers an excellent performance as his long-suffering wife. Gerald Horan is equally impressive. A must for theater fans. It may seem too stagy to some, but still, nobody can deny it's importance.
