Absolutely fantastic performances

I've been delaying seeing this film, mostly I think because seeing a wife cheat on a family with a 15 year old boy, and then get blackmailed by a crazy old witch didnt seem like a fun night at the movies, a bit too MUCH drama if you know what I mean, but the performances were so riveting it just drew me in and I kept watching and was stunned by how well the film flowed. So many mind-blowing lines... read more

"I hadn't been pursued like this for years... I knew it was wrong, and immoral, and completely ridiculous, but, I don't know. I just allowed it to happen."

Based on Zoe Heller's novel What Was She Thinking?, 2006's Notes on a Scandal is a drama-thriller in the mould of films like Fatal Attraction and Single White Female. It's a movie which burrows into the human psyche in order to e... read more

"Terrific psychological thriller with Cate Blanchett as an art teacher who begins an affair with a student, only for fellow teacher Judi Dench to find out. Agreeing to help, what Blanchett doesn't know is that Dench is infatuated with her. Richard Eyre's film is a dream ticket for both actresses, with Dench at her creepiest. Bill Nighy, in a relatively smaller role, is superb too but this is a battle of wills between two actresses at the top of their game."
