A stilted disappointment

GLORIOUS 39 is an attempt to make a film in the same vein as GOSFORD PARK and REMAINS OF THE DAY, adding in a tacked-on mystery thriller plot as per the 1930s political situation. From the first scene you know this has an exemplary cast, with the likes of Eddie Redmayne, Jeremy Northam, and Charlie Cox all appearing in solid roles. Romola Garai has always been a good fit for period drama - like the excellent BBC TV series THE HOUR - and she's fine here, apart from at the climax in which she's asked to go way over the top and becomes embarrassing as a result. A shame, then, that the writing is so sloppy, offering up one dull character after another and nobody to like. The plot twists and turns are routine, and the old-timers like Bill Nighy and Julie Christie show up and do nothing. The less said about David Tennant the better, but at least he doesn't get much screen time. Christopher Lee is a welcome presence, but he gets even less.

An aristocratic British family dealing with the possibility of their country's participation in World War II

I have a Bachelor of Science in film, but more than that I love good movies. This however is not one of them. Absolutely awful, and in so many ways. Why any of the actors featured in this film would participate in such a badly written piece of absurdity is beyond me. It is not worth your time. Period. Based on the trailer, I expected a film that dealt in a realistic way with the evolving conflicts that might impact a British aristocratic family during this period of history. Instead what I saw was a film dealing in Fellini type absurdities and characters who behaved like zombies in one surreal scenario after another. It is unrealistic, difficult to follow and boring. Save your time, and watch another film. Any other film.

Best movie I've seen in a very long time

This was an absolutely phenomenal movie! Outstanding plot, acting, and scenery. I was completely riveted and left guessing at every turn! I should also mention that I don't ever like thrillers due to too much sex and violence. While this film had some sexual scenes and involved some death, neither were gratuitous nor gory. The whole movie was so well done, and the lead actress is truly stunning. Everything was so believable that every scene was palpable. I can't say enough about how much I *loved* this movie! You've got to see this movie, especially if you like WWII era films, but even if you don't, trust me, you will still love this movie.
