We went in at 11.30 am and came out at 2.30 pm. If you've seen it at the theatre, you probably would have had a decent interval for a drink or an overpriced ice-cream. No such respite at the cinema; we had to sit still all the way through. I didn't fall asleep but someone else did.
The grand finale was what I thought the whole movie would be like, so I was very glad when it eventually materialised on the screen. There are two singalong songs which I enjoyed without actually vocalising them, but I found most of the rest rather dirge-like and all the singing spoiled the story. There were ten people in the theatre audience!
It was beautifully produced, brilliantly acted and very mostly well sung. I don't think anyone has ever paid Russell Crowe for his singing voice.
I also didn't know what to expect because my history knowledge is poor and I thought there had only been ONE French Revolution.
Luckily when we came out the weather chaos hoped for by the media had not occurred oop north for a change and we drove home comfortably.
Now settled in the warmth of the snug to watch some Mastermind.
