How this movie has an average of 5.3 but the disgracefully botched 2022 version of Persuasion, a 5.6, is beyond me. Yes, Mr. Malcolm’s List is Austen-esque and predictable, but at least the script captured the zeitgeist of the early 1800s. Its preview (which is on YouTube) actually came out early 2019, so I’m guessing Bridgerton took a leaf out of their book in regard to a diverse cast.
The two leads don’t have much chemistry but the cast in general is excellent. I particularly enjoyed Oliver Jackson-Cohen’s Lord Cassidy and although Julia Thistlewaite’s character is downright unpleasant, Zawe Ashton embodied her brilliantly. I’m glad she replaced Gemma Chan, whose performance in the preview I thought a bit spiritless.
All in all, not an arthouse film experience but definitely worth the watch if you’re into period pieces. I watched it for the second time today and didn’t enjoy it any less than I did the first time.
Don’t use a super pregnant actress as your heroin
Wife and I had a hard time getting past how pregnant Frieda Pinto looked, terrible job hiding it in the movie… it completely ruined the believability of the story… should have held off Filming or picked a new actress..
