Historical drama
Gothic face-man Robert Pattinson takes a baby step up from the Twilight series in this pallid costumer about a fake journalist turned parvenu/gigolo, pushed and pulled through the parlors of Belle Epoque Paris like a showroom dummy, at the whim of a succession of female patrons and their grumpy husbands. Pattinson’s weakness as an actor is all the more glaring when compared to his supporting players, including Uma Thurman, Christina Ricci, Kristin Scott Thomas, and Colm Meaney. But they’re all equally sandbagged by writer Rachel Bennette’s awful dialogue (she adapted the screenplay from the novel by Guy de Maupassant). Co-directors Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod violate one of the basic rules of fiction: A portrait of a flawed person must not itself be flawed. (102 min.)
Director: Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod
Producer: Uberto Pasolini and Simon Fuller
Cast: Robert Pattinson, Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas, Christina Ricci, Colm Meaney, Philip Glenister, Holliday Grainger and Natalia Tena
