Top Customer Reviews
The two I didn't much like the first time I saw them I liked even less the second time. ("Restoration" with Robert Downey Jr. and "The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill But Came Down a Mountain" with Hugh Grant) but I suspect that's a minority viewpoint.
The two I was seeing here for the first time made this purchase well worth the buy all on their own. "Sweet Revenge" with Helena Bonham Carter, Sam Neill and Kristin Scott Thomas is an absolute hoot and I can't believe I'd never heard of it. "Tom and Viv" with Willem Dafoe and Miranda Richardson tells the sad story of author T. S. Eliot's angst-ridden first marriage, back in the days when women with "female" problems were diagnosed as mentally ill and carted off to the looney bin.
There are no extras--no subtitles, no closed-captioning, no scene indexes. Also, the product info above gives the impression that Gerard Butler is Dench's co-star in "Mrs. Brown." Not so. Dench's co-star is Billy Connolly. Butler plays a supporting role as Connolly's brother.Read more ›
