I expected this film to be a slight disappointment, but I was quite
wrong about that!! The reason I was worried was Zac Efron. I'm a huge
fan of Orson Welles and got very excited when I heard a film about the
Caesar production was being made, but I thought this was too big a step
for Efron. However he proved himself more than capable, and gives a
very strong performance as Richard Samuels - a teenager who finds
romance everywhere in life and yearns to act in bigger productions than
school plays... who chances on Orson Welles and manages to talk/sing
his way into Caesar.
Christain Mckay's performance as Orson Welles is equally impressive, as is Clare Danes as the ambitious yet charming Sonya Jones, and what's more the period (1930s New York) is captured brilliantly in the film, with great attention paid to language, location and costume.
In short: very, VERY entertaining and should appeal to a wide demographic - including Zac fans and doubters alike!!
