Been meaning to watch this ever since I saw it pop up during the Oscars one year. Expected it to be quite good but didn’t have overly high expectations for it since I knew nothing about it.
Turned out to be quite good for the most part, with the exception of the ending, which was quite awesome. The story is really very good, and it’s cool that it was based on a true story. Really liked all parts of the movie, actually, including the story, cast, performances, music, and locations. Not sure which is really my favourite (aside from the great ending), and everything is just…good. I especially liked Carey Mulligan not only because she’s cute, but also because she plays her part quite well. I really liked how it was set in the early 1960s as well (fun-looking cars), and I enjoyed the on-location shots of Paris as well as the canon inclusion of French music..?!
Somehow, I don’t have much to say about this film even if it’s quite good and, most importantly, very satisfying. Recommended, and after you’ve seen it, do read some of the (perhaps scandalous-like) autobiographical articles that was written by and about Lynn Barber, whose memoir formed the basis of this story. 86/100
