    Default Notes on a Scandal

    Ooh- just saw this last night. Anyone seen it? Judi Dench is so good as the obsessed woman. Love the arc in the movie. You think she's a good person (albeit a little tight) when it starts out and then when you figure out what's been going on, it's really kind of creepy.

    And I have to say that kid's accent just about did me in. What was it? Scottish?

    I loved the book and was skeptical about the movie but it was almost as good!

    Judi was awesome!

    I think the kids accent was Scottish.

    Kid sounded kinda Irish to me but could be Scotish. I really liked the film and Judi and Cate's performances were out of the world. Really liked Bill Nighy as the husband too.

    Loved this movie. I thought Bill Nighy as Cate's hubby was surprisingly HOT, wished they'd had a sex scene. I actually think Judi Dench shoulda have edged out Helen Mirren for Best Actress.

    Bill was hot... Stephen and his little accent - also hot.. but I wouldnt' do him, ok???? Loved the movie - Cate was great, Judi skeered me which means she was great too.

    Saw it when it first came out and as always thought Judi was fantastic. Loved it.

    On a personal note I had just put my 21 year old cat to sleep so that one scene was really painful for me.

    This movie is so excellent, I just finished watching it. I'd heard it was good from so many people that I was afraid it wouldn't live up to my expectations, but it definitely did.

    Default Notes on a Scandal

    sorry if this has already been posted

    I just saw this film, and thought it was so good. The acting, the score, the cutie minor, everything. Bill Nighy was fantastic. Everytime i see cate i realize why i consider her the best. The lines in this movie were really great too. When i wasnt laughing, i was laughing.

    Anyone else see it?

    I have and I loevd it. Great acting by absolutely everyone in it and a very interesting script. Judy Dench and Cate Blanchett rocked the place and Bill Nighy was as good as he always is.

    It was very disturbing, that's for sure. I felt like I was watching a Horror film - I kept yelling at the TV, "Don't! Get out of there!". Very good everything - acting, script, score, direction, etc.. Cate deserved the S. Actress Oscar.
    I saw a film today, oh boy.

    I feel for you. I put my very old cat to sleep three years ago and I still have his photo on my desk. I'm looking at it now.
