Ripley's movie review

The costumes and settings were gorgeous, Dench was flawless, and Witherspoon was charming. It was funny but, occasionally, the exchanges between Everett and Firth fell a bit flat and Wilde's biting wit was lost. Good movie but not quite as good as it could have been.

Newt's movie review

I thoroughly enjoyed the witty exchanges between Firth and Everett and I thought Witherspoon carried off her part quite well. Dench was her usual amazing self. Wilde's humour was quick and fun and I really enjoyed it.
