Old Victorian

A rather unusual review of The Philadelphia Story, written from the perspective of a Victorian-era young lady, is available on Driving Mr Spacey.
Miss Jennifer Ehle gave a powerful performance developing effectively from the cold “ice queen” to a warmer person who is able to consider what she is doing. In fact the only criticism I had of Miss Ehle was caused by the green-eyed monster, jealousy! She was far too pretty a young lady to be so obviously “involved” with Mr. Spacey’s character. The kiss between them at the end was clearly intended to be among the finalists for “Longest Kiss on the London Stage” and in fact Miss Prim told me to cover my eyes!
