Keeping Mum ★★★½

I hadn’t heard anything about this movie before I saw it, and the only thing I knew about it when I sat down to watch the movie was that Rowan Atkinson was in it.

Admittedly, "Keeping Mum" is not a movie to everyone’s taste, but I was positively surprised by it. It is refreshing to see Atkinson play a more ordinary and three-dimensional yet quite funny character, and Maggie Smith (Professor Minerva McGonagall in the Harry Potter movies) is great as the mysterious new housekeeper.
