being julia

In Being Juila, Annette Bening, like her character aging 1930′s theatre star Julia Lambert, is a clever, witty, beautiful tour de force. Not content with quietly approaching the “age where there are no good roles for women” Julia creates her own: randy lover, adoring and concerned mother, and thoughtful mentor, without ever relinquishing the role of super star. This sparkling film gallops along like a 1930′s jalopy, and Bening (who gloriously looks her age) is a delight to watch from beginning to end. [UK/US, 2004]
