So boring!
20 August 2019 | by ukxenafan1See all my reviews

I'd been looking forward to this - literary lesbian tale with two actresses I like. Sounds perfect. My unease grew with the modern music on the soundtrack but the main problem was the dull dialogue. Poor Gemma Arterton, Elizabeth Debicki and the other talented cast member were like goldfish, mouthing nothing. There was no real tension and to be honest no plot to speak of. Debicki probably comes out of it the best but a hugely disappointing, dull pudding of a movie.
