The killing of sister george About
The Killing of Sister George

Not naughty enough and rather like a maiden aunt caught with a blouse button undone. Some nicely realised passages – especially the earlier character set-ups – get crushed under Aldrich’s steam roller view of comedy and what should have been a character study into drunken descent is instead side-lined into heavy-handed breast fumbling... Lumpen stodge enlivened by a couple of tangy performances from Reid and Browne.
