3.5 out of 10 Being Julia
Deirdre from Dublin, 23 Apr 2007
Enjoyable look at theatre life in London in the late 1930's. Annette Benning is superb as the title character, who seems to live her entire life as if she is always on stage - everything is an act. Adapted from a Somerset Maughan short story ("Theatre") - same author as Of Human Bondage, The Moon and Sixpence and the current release The Painted Veil. Worth a look.

This is a really enjoyable film, a surprising treat. Well worth a look especially if you want a break from modern brash hollywood type films.

What's it about....
Reigning diva Julia Lambert's success and fame grow suddenly wearisome. She falls head over heels for a young American, Tom, and begins a passionate May - December affair. When she realizes that Tom is just a young social climber whose real passion is ambitious young starlet Avice Crichton, Julia begins to plot a delightful revenge...
