Annette Bening evokes Gloria Grahame. The hair, the corners of her mouth, her voice ever so slightly raised in pitch (to match her voice without being obnoxious).
Jamie Bell is a good actor, but maybe he was cast for his talent as a dancer as well (we get some disco-era-style dancing!).
Well, it's pretty good overall.
Health note: Gloria takes several measures to deal with her illness including getting apricot pits at a health food store, but she continues to smoke and requests (vegan alert) milk even though those things were detrimental to her health.
Other vegan alert: Gloria Grahame (Bening) wears a fur coat while going down the stairs at the end.
This is the 120th film I've seen using Movie Pass.
