It's all in the details...

I loved the film, love Bancroft and Sir Anthony and Dame Judi, love what the reviewers have said about this marvelous little film. But I will add that if you love the time period (the setting begins in 1949), you will appreciate that set after set is tirelessly and lovingly dressed with the details of the late '40's through the '50's to the '60's. The costuming alone could be praised, and I generally don't focus on fashion in films. Backgrounds, even if they appear briefly, were carefully created to transport us back in time, just as we are transported into the separate worlds and lives of these two correspondents. Brilliantly done.
