This (Ghosts) was better than I expected
31 March 2011 | by Flavious_MaximusSee all my reviews

At first, when watching this film I thought it was not going to be all that great mostly because of the stale, outdated looking stage production set. But boy was I wrong. Wow, what a performance by ALL of the actors. I could not get this movie out of my mind even days after watching it. The final few scenes, especially when the mother reveals the truth about the servant girl will leave you stunned. The movie cast only five actors but they were all fantastic. What can you say about Judi Dench that has not already been said. Natasha Richardson is beautiful. Freddy Jones was perfect for the part of a bumbling, teetotaler. It is obvious that Kenneth Branagh "as Oswald" was completely drained and exhausted with the ending sequence of this film. It will leave you in the same state as well.
