Just went to see it today. Was amazing, the acting is great. They really get the period down, ALOT of attention to detail. Worth going to see.

SYNOPSIS

    Yep, good stuff.

    Enjoyed it; still think it’ll lose Best Picture Oscar to “The Social Network” (and frankly, it ought to.)

    Also: inB4 “King is just a powerless figurehead” shitstorm.

    Best thing about that movie was Helena Bonham Carter. Damn son, she just keeps getting finer and finer.

    Saw it over the weekend, it was fantastic. Geoffrey Rush is just badass.

    Also, an excellent reminder of why the ratings system is fucking idiotic. Because we can’t let children see an inspirational movie like this because someone says fuck a handful of times, but it’s fine if they want to go see Little Fockers, because it only *sounds* like they’re saying fuck.

    I first noticed Geoffrey Rush in Quills and loved him in it. I will always check out any movie w/ him in it.
