Noli Manaig's rating of the film Classical Period

Predicated on what might verge on a gratuitous display of scholarship, it may want in charm & humor otherwise. Each speaking part a citation, it could be well served by footnotes and a bibliography had it pushed the envelope. Likely appeal is to bibiliophiles & students taking up literature. But its comic-dramatic kernel is how the semblance of erudition masks the awkwardness of its young, inexperienced characters.
