    Informative movie. Good and decent. Great performances. If you’re looking for a little suspense or something with twists, this isn’t the movie for you.

    ★★★

    The summary and writing of "A Bill of Divorcement" is quite dated, but that isn't particularly an issue. It seems as though RKO wanted to put out a film that touched on a sensitive topic, but at the same time, they just wanted to toss something out into the theaters for a quick buck--and the desire for the latter quickly took precedence over desire for the former. What makes this a "bad" thing is the obviousness of the fact. What could have been a groundbreaking 1930s film on mental health was released as a rushed and under-cooked ham.

    The acting was great, though.

    What a great watch! The plot was quite simple and true to Pre-Code formula, but the well-developed characters (especially the protagonist) are what make the film. Excellent acting from everyone, as well. The star, Helen Twelvetrees, does a great job of flowing through a range of emotions without steering away from the essence and honesty of the titular role. My main takeaway: I need to watch more movies with Helen Twelvetrees.

    Not a great movie, but not bad, either. Josephine Baker keeps us entertained through what would otherwise be a dull movie with a hint of jazz and lots of pretty women.
