Sam Taylor United States, 1929

SpacePirate's rating of the film Coquette

Almost laughably bad, although it has some moments that work well. The whole film feels like a cliche but thats until you remember most of the films you're thinking of came after. Pickford's southern drawl is not that good, but the rest of her performance is ok. She feels out of her element and overacts at times, but the film suffers more from pacing and the overall story than her performance which is usually blamed.
