The Stage Online: Philadelphia Story saved by the last act

This brief review at The Stage Online features an interesting low-angle shot of Jennifer Ehle.

This amusingly hectic last half-hour successfully erases the memory of the previous two and shows Kevin Spacey at his best in the role of Dexter, a charmer but somehow dangerous and unpredictable without explaining just how and why. Jennifer Ehle, as Tracy, is prompted to sparkle in this scene as well, convincing us that only Dexter, for all his unspelt-out faults, is the man for her.
