A good movie

10 years ago at May 11 14:16
I wasn't really sure what to expect from this flick but since there was a decent cast, I was quite eager to check it out. Eventually, it is rather difficult to fairly judge this flick after so many years. Obviously, I am pretty sure that many people would be shocked when watching this movie as the whole thing was pretty intolerant towards gay people. Even Shirley MacLaine herself, 30 years later, ... read more

Great in most part of it, just object the last part, in wich teatrical origin is a bit heavy. But, acting and directing is excellent as almost always with Wyler...

My Movie Diary 2017 (217 movies items)

"29 March. A malicious rumour of lesbianism destroys the life of two women who run an all-girls boarding school. It starts rather whimsical but as soon as the problem arises, it becomes a serious deal. A controversial subject penned by Lilian Hellman stars Audrey Hepburn and Shirley MacLaine.  "

"27.02. DVD, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY William Wyler Kolmen tähden arvosanan saavat elokuvat, jotka eivät varsinaisesti vituta, mutteivät myöskään jaksa herättää suuria tunteita. Huhu on varmaan aikaansa ja paikkaansa nähden hyvin edistyksellinen kuvaus homorakkaudesta, minkä vuoksi halusin elokuvan tsekatakin. Taidan olla aika kyllästynyt vanhoihin Hollywood-draamoihin, kun tämä patsastelu lähinnä etäännyttää. "
