Pointless

Meryl Streep stars as a young British woman working for the French resistance during WWII. After the war, she goes home and we see the next 20 years of her life.

I didn't get this movie at all. I thought it was poorly conceived and written and basically a bore. Streep was the only good actor in the cast and she overacted a lot in a very unsympathetic role. Though the movie spans twenty years, she didn't age at all, looking luminously young and beautiful throughout. The director chose not to have fade-outs or subtitles telling us what year we were watching, so we had to guess by looking at the clothing styles. Very confusing and tiresome.

We do get to see a dark-haired Ian McKellen as a stuffy diplomat and a young Sting as a clueless stud. But nothing much happens in this film; it's just endless talking (it's based on a play) and nothing interesting or touching is said. Odd and off-putting, this is one to skip.
