Sally Hawkins: The Lost King (IFC)

My piece for the Scarecrow blog this week, and etc.

The Lost King. “This is a script that might easily have given itself over to quirk, and coasted by on a few David and Goliath emotional beats, but this is a case where the Frears touch might be the difference-maker.”

We’ve got another session in Scarecrow Academy’s “Women in Trouble: Great Melodrama in Film” series, a free online discussion, Saturday 3/25, at 2 pm Pacific Time. We’ll talk about Douglas Sirk’s classic All That Heaven Allows (1955), starring Jane Wyman and Rock Hudson. Register here.
