A few days late, sorry about that. The master is back to work, after a series of popcorn fair and an ill-received fourquel, he's back in presumably prestigious ground. This drama, adapted from the Tony-winning stage show, looks to pretty good from what I can tell. Said adaptation is done so by the Oscar-nominated duo Richard Curtis (Four Weddings and a Funeral) and Lee Hall (Billy Elliot), and stars newcomer Jeremy Irvine and vets Emily Watson and David Thewlis. Those few I know who have seen the stage show say it's thrilling, if only a little melodramatic. How do you guys think it looks? Could this spell Oscar for Spielberg? Trailer below.
It's set for a Christmas release.
