Notes on a movie



I saw the movie Notes on a Scandal tonight and was very impressed. It was based on a novel, and I love movies that keep that "book" feeling, if that makes any sense. I thought the characters were fascinating, and reminded me of some stories I have written - or have aspired to write. I was particularly drawn to a scene where Cate Blanchett dresses up as her former rock star self. It seems that at that point she has the clarity to understand the motives of another character.
