Page Eight [Aug. 29th, 2011|09:56 am]
Tony Grist
In the real world people who look like Bill Nighy don't have people who look like Rachel Weisz chasing after them, unless, of course, they are Bill Nighy.

David Hare has been famous for so long he probably doesn't know anybody who isn't of Bill Nighy's order of famousness.

Am I jealous of my old school fellow?

Possibly.

On the other hand when I watched his movie last night I was absolutely wanting to cheer for it. I thought he was going to give us some truth.  What we got was warmed over le Carre- spiced with zingy dialogue- enacted by Hare's famous mates the cream of the British acting profession. You know what? Ralph Fiennes is even scarier when he's wearing a nose.

I was a bit underwhelmed with "Page Eight", but there isn't all that much on at the moment to watch. I'm afraid that Bill Nighy does nothing for me and I do get very tired of the young attractive woman falls for wrinkly old man trope. However, there were occasional moments of sharp dialogue and I managed not to fall asleep, even though I'd worked hard in the morning pulling up Himalayan Balsam plants.

It's good the BBC are still making classy one-off dramas like this. Otherwise.....
