It's hard to see any effort in the film. There's no comedy to speak of, no real drama and, worst of all.
Each character in this movie — down to the smallest one — is an individual rather than a type, prone to spontaneous changes of mood and sometimes amusing outbursts of pettiness or ill humor.
Actress is magnificent and exudes a hypnotic screen presence in this affecting drama.
It is a whirlwind of delight --- attractive actors, stunning couture, spectacular sets and outrageous parties. It's a feast for the eyes. But what really makes this dramedy work is the acting.
