judi, cate and philip
I watched Notes on a Scandal last night, and was very impressed by the film as a whole, but especially impressed by the superb acting ability of Judi Dench and Cate Blanchett. That basically goes without saying. Also, from the very first frames of the film until the very last, I was moved by the film score. So I must add that composer Philip Glass was another star of the film. I think I'll start adding films that he's scored on my Netflix queue. I also recall that the San Francisco Ballet has paired some of his arrangements with some of their choreography. In any case, I would recommend Notes on a Scandal for the musical score alone, but it also happens to be quite a well-put-together film and a very enjoyable watch.
