v different from iannucci’s usual work, but great nonetheless. dev patel is a perfect david copperfield, thinking of any of the other adaptions feels wrong now tbh. tilda swinton, hugh laurie, and peter capaldi are all (unsurprisingly) exceptional. aneurin barnard consistently plays my fav character in every book to screen adaption he’s ever involved in (say hi war and peace and the goldfinch😚✌🏼). go and see it w ur mum.
i will watch hugh grant in anything but i will especially watch hugh grant when he’s playing a (fake) dilf. this is one of my mums favourite films and we must watch it about 4 times a year and i never get bored. at times devastating, at times hilarious. toni collette and a baby nicholas hoult playing mother and son>>>>
i have seen this film four times now. it was the last film i watched in 2019 and the first i watched in 2020. greta gerwig IS that bitch. i didn’t think it was possible to have a better jo and laurie than winona ryder and christian bale but then saoirse ronan and timothée chalamet decided to prove me wrong - and the tea is, they aren’t even the best part of the film (*enter florence pugh*)!! everything about this is spot on. it is a forever fav and i honestly can’t wait to see what greta puts out next🥰
