It's de-lovely

I just saw "De-Lovely", and loved it. I laughed. There were scenes where I'm sure a larger audience would have clapped (I saw it in a multiplex with maybe 25 other people scattered around the room — you don't get critical mass in a group like that, even if someone does have the nerve to be the first one to start clapping.) And at the end, I cried.

It's in some ways a sweet, old-fashioned biopic, like "The Glenn Miller Story", but without the need that era felt to make such films hagiographies. I'm not going to try to write a cogent review;there's a too long, too detailed, but overall fair review at if you want one of those. I'll just say this: If you have a sentimental bone in your body, you'll love this movie. If you appreciate beautiful songs beautifully performed, you'll love it even more.</p>.
