Deiner's rating of the film Ivy

I think Ivy is one of those movies that you may like depending on whether you love Joan Fontaine's portrayal of the main character or not. Well, I thought she was absolutely brilliant, especially when you consider she was playing against her earlier archetype of the ingénue. I also liked the cinematography, the score and some of the costumes, but it's Fontaine's excelent performance that sells this movie for me.
