A film that never really gets going. All the way through I was waiting for something dramatic to happen. I don’t think that Eddie Izzard is well cast in this. I don’t think it is the right role for him to play. I also thought that Judi Dench was totally miscast. Jim Broadbent looked as though he didn’t really know how or why he ended up acting in this film. I also am a bit confused with the main purpose of his character. None of the roles seemed to develop in any shape or form. I don’t know what the main purpose is on the whole film or what the message is that they are trying to get us to understand.
