To make sure her life story is told her way, she pays off her local newspaper to have her obituary written in advance under her watchful eye. But Anne (Amanda Seyfried), the young journalist assigned to the task, refuses to follow the script and instead insists on finding out the true facts about Harriett's life, resulting in a life-altering friendship.Written by
Oh my God! Shirley, one of the greatest actresses of all time, has not deserved this. Consistently bad acting throughout all parts of the movie and all actors, even Shirley, sloppy directing and a story that has more holes than a Swiss cheese. Not one bit of the movie is believable, not one minute touching or moving. I was so excited to finally see the movie, all the more was I disappointed. This is how you destroy the fame of an icon. Pity.
