Did You Know?

Julie Walters shaved her head to reproduce Mo Mowlam's hair loss due to the tumour, but she had to leave a small strip at the back for Mo's various wigs to be attached to.See more »
Anachronisms: During the scene in the salon trying on the wigs, Robbie Williams was singing "Angels" on the radio, which wasn't released as a single until December 1997 (and the album "Life Thru A Lens" was released in September 1997).See more »
[Tony Blair is giving a speech and is thanking all the people who played a part in the Peace Talks. When he mentions Mo Mowlam's name, the audience get to their feet and cheer]
Tony Blair:I think I can say without fear of contradiction that's the first time there's been a standing ovation in the *middle* of a speech. And the person getting the ovation isn't even the person making the speech.

Julie is So Good, 13 February 2010
Author: beresfordjd from United Kingdom

Is there nothing Julie Walters cannot do? Everything she does is wonderful (with one exception-Mamma Mia-I do not know what she was like in that- I could not bear to watch enough to see her performance!) But in "Mo" she turns in a career-defining turn. Mo Mowlam herself would probably have loved to see what she did with it. Heartbreakingly sad, funny and profane all at once she carries the whole thing with aplomb. Surrounded by great support and a good screenplay, Julie holds the audience in thrall with her acting chops. I would love to think Mo Mowlam really was like this and she spoke as plainly to the Sinn Fein element and the Unionists. It certainly made for entertaining television drama. An incredible production with an incredible actress at it's centre, Mo is entertaining, educational and life-affirming, in spite of the inevitable end.
