this was better than brilliant. it was captivating, heartfelt and a cinematic masterpiece to put it lightly. despite it's length, it goes by quickly and you become caught up in the web of enchantment and lies. it was beautiful, the acting was spectacular and i couldn't recommend it enough.
The production values are spot on and the performances were all perfect(most notably Alicia Viklander playing the queen) It's a satisfying watch but I was hoping for a bit more than what we've seen in many of other period films. 3.5 stars
