Great Cast, Poor Movie and really bad WIG !
22 September 2018 | by hampersnow-28905See all my reviews

Nancy is filled with great actors giving it their all. The casting is perfection. The story sounded interesting but if you go into this thinking it is in any way a thriller it is not. These great actors are stuck in a movie that is just filled with holes, a poor script, a not very well fleshed out story and poor direction. It may seem minor but with a story this slow you can't help but notice things like wigs changing color from scene to scene and make-up jobs that disappear. At times I felt like maybe in the course of filming they changed direction and added or deleted parts leaving the final product an inconsistent jumble of scenes. Characters and situations that could have been fleshed out were not and by the time Nancy ended she was still pretty much a mystery. What a waste of acting talent ! With poor continuity, amateurish direction, a weak script, and bad editing , this film is an interesting idea gone wrong. And I can not mention it enough, but THAT WIG ! It is so distracting I can't help but wonder, was it used on purpose ?
