While this film is wonderful at capturing the look of the "Jazz Age" it falls short on the script side. The performances are uneven and average at best and the story is close to incomprehensible at times - as well as fairly inaccurate re: Bix. I really wanted to like this film, but instead I found it to be long and boring. The music, on the other hand, is fantastic.
