Simple and sad
1 November 2016 | by ekelks-2See all my reviews

Hugely disagree with the one other reviewer on this site. That Wodehouse was too innocent to understand how the Nazis were using him also explains why he didn't blink an eye at Macintosh's anti-Semitic doings. Wodehouse was sequestered from the war by the Nazis. How was he to know what was happening? Absurd critique. And the movie is paced well, not too fast, certainly not too slow. Pigott-Smith is wonderful as Wodehouse, Zoe Wanamaker brilliant as his beloved, not-so-easily fooled wife. Julian Rhind-Tutt plays Malcolm Muggeridge, PUNCH editor, satirist, and Guardian writer. Flora Montgomery, once Ireland's EFP's Shooting Star, is lovely as Leonora, Wodehouse's (step)-daughter.
