I finally saw Hysteria
. I liked it. Funny and fun and good costumes and an amusing foray into the quirks of medical history.
like Maggie Gyllenhaal very much as an actress, but I don't think this
is her best effort. Her accent slipped up a few times and I was always
very conscious of her acting, if you know what I mean? It was like she
was trying to be Minnie Driver. The length of the courtroom scene was
rather jarring, and (like the courtroom scene in Dangerous Beauty) is
destined to be fast forwarded every time one rewatches.
thought Felicity Jones rather stole the movie, and is maturing into the
kind of young lady I could see play Prudence in the new series. Of
course, one spend the entire film waiting for Rupert Everett to
reappear. But when is that not the case? I believe I am waiting for
Rupert Everett to reappear right this very moment.
summation, I laughed out loud several times. I would certainly say this
movie is worth renting. It's a nice break to have a costume drama that
is funny and light and stays that way.GAIL'S DAILY DOSEYour Moment of Parasol . . .1920 ChicagoYour Infusion of Cute . . .Decayed DaguerreotypesYour Tisane of Smart . . .Suffragettes and TearoomsYour Writerly Tinctures . . .When Should You Stop Revising?

Manga Vol. 2 Review from The Fandom PostQuote of the Day:
"We are all dietetic sinners; only a small percent of what we eat nourishes us; the balance goes to waste and loss of energy."
