The Libertine (2004)
wonderful performances by the cast
The Libertine, is a small movie with wonderful performances by the entire cast. Johnny Depp's turn as the Earl I believe was Oscar worthy.The earl lived his life fast and dangerous, from his constant drinking and sex life, to his jabs at the King and court.
The movie is dark and a bit grainy, the times in which the earl lived was just that. I think the film makers wanted to convey that feeling,I believe they did.
Samantha Morton was also excellent as the actress Barry,a very strong performance by Miss Pike as the earls suffering wife also.
By the end of the movie Johnny Depp's speech to the House of Lords,disfigured and lame from the life he led was just wonderful, an excellent acting job by Mr Depp.
