This is a 2-minute short film, in which Judi Dench (in her role as M) tells us about the facts why women are still unequal in terms of money and the law. Meanwhile, we see the current James Bond, Daniel Craig, first in his agent outfit and afterward in drag. The idea here is obviously to use the possibly most virile character in film history, to support this honorable matter. However, I felt this could be handled in a more entertaining manner, a manner that could have fit James Bond more nicely. I am a great fan of the movies, but this one here does not do a lot for me really. It's a good cause yes, but in terms of film, this is an effort with fairly low production values I must say. The director here is Sam Taylor-Wood, who is mostly known for the recent movie "50 Shades of Grey" and also for her marriage to the lead actor from "Kick-Ass" who is basically half her age. Fittingly the script from this short movie comes from one of the "Kick-Ass" producers. Not a good 3 minutes and it's basically the same as if you would read the words on a website, only that there are 2 famous actors in here. Not recommended.
