This looks like one of those small great Bill Condon films. You know him from CANDYMAN 2: FAREWELL TO THE FLESH. No? Oh, you know him from his Academy Award winning adaptation of CHICAGO he scripted or his DREAMGIRLS or the last two TWILIGHT: BREAKING DAWN parts. Like Guillermo Del Toro, Bill Condon has another side. The films he makes for him. His soul. Those films are GODS & MONSTERS, KINSEY and MR. HOLMES. Two of the three star Sir Ian McKellen. Will placing him in this deceptive romance with Dame Helen Mirren result in awards fireworks? Take a look at the trailer:
My favorite thing about his trailer was seeing Carson from DOWTON ABBEY in it! Jim Carter is the heart of that show for everyone I know. The film looks quite compelling. It comes out opposite Banks' CHARLIE'S ANGELS. Which would you rather see?
