me: omg elastigirl
If I had not already read the book then I would have probably liked this film a little more, I liked the fleabag vibes (yes I will refer to anything that includes looking into the camera as fleabag) but the heart and soul of the story was taken away and replaced with a hollow comedy that didn't do justice the brutal yearning of Anne and Frederick, it was instead reduced to gen z humour which I suppose appeals to a younger audience but if you're going to adapt from a beautifully written novel then you should do it right.
I have mixed feelings about this film, it was very entertaining to watch and Nicole Kidman is fantastic, but it was also frustrating to endure all the men in the film (and I suppose that is the intention). Not only that, but the commentary on society appeared rather flat and seemed to dismiss major themes of deep rooted misogyny and oppression for wry humour. I kind of want to check out the original to see the differences and similarities, and apparently it uses more thriller elements rather than comedy so that would be interesting (and it has a higher rating than it's remake).
