Vita And Virginia (2018)
It's the fascinating true story about the love affair between socialite and popular author Vita Sackville-West and literary icon Virginia Woolf.
Stars: Gemma Arterton, Elizabeth Debicki, Isabella Rossellini
I have seen this described as Movie Poetry by one watcher and there is no doubting the quality and style in the filming but perhaps they forgot that a movie has to interest you at least not to mention entertain you.
The first half of the film just dragged along with pretty hard to understand dialogue and the second half although livening up a bit. Did not have much to beat in the first half.
There is a hint of the wonderful "Gentleman Jack" series partway through and when I say hint it's probably the early tense girl on girl action, that when it does happen does not help the movie at all.
The highlight had to be seeing the wonderful "Benidorm" actor Adam Gillen playing a role.
Overall very classy and pretty but very little in the way of plot.
