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. "
