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

“Notes on a Scandal is a brilliant film, a deep look into two lonely ladies. One older who is really alone in every term, and the other married with children who is lost and lonely. The story starts off with Sheba Hart starting a new job at a school, where she meets Barbara who at first is nice and just looking for a friend. When Sheba starts an affair with a student, Barbara's true colors emerge. Cate Blanchette who plays Sheba, and Judi Dench who plays Barbara are excellent together, they play off of each other so well. Two very fine actresses bringing, a very intense film to life. At times it can be depressing, but this movie is so worth a look.” read more

July-August 2013 Movie Journal (40 movies items)

" (Rewatch) "People like Sheba think they know what it is to be lonely. But of the drip, drip of the long-haul, no-end-in-sight solitude, they know nothing. What it's like to construct an entire weekend around a visit to the launderette. Or to be so chronically untouched that the accidental brush of a bus conductor's hand sends a jolt of longing straight to your groin. Of this, Sheba and her like have no clue." Bliss!! Plenty of rewatches later, this is still an exquisitely shot, exquisite"

Sublimely engaging... The acting is excellent

“"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 explore the deepest, darkest recesses of obsession and loneliness. On top of this, Notes on a Scandal is very much an acting main event which brings together two of the greatest actresses of this generation - Judi Dench and Cate Blanchett - and pits them against one another. Suffice it to say, the resulting flick is sublimely engaging.
