Notes On A Scandal Fergus'S REVIEW

Dame Judi pitches her performance perfectly

I am an unashamed Judi Dench fan. Bias declared I will go onto say that her performance is intense but subtle. No over-acting here. The person she presents to us is humanly complex and I left the theatre both horrified by and sympathetic to her. Not a feel good film but a disturbing thought provoking film which I will be chewing over and relishing for weeks to come.
