Not a fan of George Clooney, at all. And, sure enough, he totally Clooneyesqued this film. In more capable hands, oh my, this story would have shone on screen. As it is, blah. Except for the amazing Cate Blanchett, who is brilliant in everything she does.
The rest of the cast, mis-cast, in my opinion.
This is an amazing story of the bravery of men whose profound understanding of art as an expression of human yearning and culture deserves a beautiful rendering. This article shares something of their valor.
