    How can a Dame Judy Dench film with WW2/pre-Cold War espionage, the creation of the atomic bomb, people holding government secrets for decades, multiple love interests, police investigations/interrogations AND corrupt politicians be so dull!!?!

    As expected, Daniel Day-Lewis is incredible as Reynolds Woodcock, a 1950s renowned dress-maker to the elite…
