Rank & Bile At The Movies - Notes On A Scandal Starring Judi Dench & Cate Blanchett

Last night Lulu and I went to see the new Cate Blanchett and Judi Dench movie Notes On A Scandal. What a great film and so good to see Dame Judi out of that “Lavender Girls” “Mrs Henderson” Dotty old lady rut she’s been stuck in for ages. This time Judi gets to play bad, in fact psycho lesbian from hell bad! And she’s great!

Cate Blanchett, not normally one of my favourite actresses, turns in a brilliantly underplayed and restrained performance and even that old ham Bill Nighy for once plays someone other than himself.

Judi’s usual fans however may find her portrayal of her a hard bitten, psychotic, spinster, school teacher a little hard to stomach but I loved it. Highly recommended this film goes on general release February 2nd Go see it!
