    Hush... Hush, Sweet Charlotte

    ★★★½

    Hush... Hush, Sweet Charlotte is a 3.5, but it's barely 3.5/5, if that makes any sense. I kind of expected more from it. The most positive things about the film are Bette Davis and Olivia de Havilland's performances; they were amazing (especially Davis and the pure hysteria that radiated from her character, Charlotte).

I couldn't find anyone to watch it with me though and I was beginning to lose hope that I would catch it before the Oscars. But fortunately, I urged a close friend of mine to…
