"Ehle is the diamond in this rough piece"

So says a reader review on the New York Times site about The Philadelphia Story.

Jennifer Ehle is very intelligent. By not attempting to impersonate Hepburn or 'make the role her own', she achieves both feats. Ehle gains the poise and control of her predecessor and standing tall in her place, she avoids the long shadow cast of the infamous Kate.

Ehle shines, subtley, so as not to glare out over her co-stars. She gives a truly layered, acerbic, fragile and delicious portrayal of the stubborn but special American belle.

A little less enthusiastic about Adrian Lukis, though:

Lukis, usually so enigmatically attractive, has not yet filled Spacey's space...
