The Worst Film Ever
An Exercise In Nonsense
The movie's neither hopeful in contrived ways, nor hopeless in different contrived ways. Somehow it manages to be wonderful
All of these films share one commonality, that being a kind of emotional center that humanizes a cast of monsters.
Benedict Cumberbatch is brilliant as Patrick Melrose. I must confess that in the middle of the first episode I considered not watching anymore as it is a very distressing issue however I am glad I did. This series touches on many issues and speaking out against what is wrong and defending children at all costs is paramount.
Absolutely loved this and I am now a massive cumberbatch fan, but the eye colour thing from boy to man annoyed the bloody hell out of me. Were there no other blue eyed boy actors available????!
I couldn't manage to read the books. I tried but the story about the boy Patrick, knowing it was based on reality, and being a mother of two boys myself was too much. But tv is another thing and I am very glad for this adaption. Episode one maybe being a bit over the top but after that it turned into one of the best family dramas I have seen. In many ways reminding me of Bridshead revisited.Benedict Cumberbatch is amazing and so is all the other characters. I can't imagine what it took out of Hugo Weaving to play such a cruel role...A must see and a future classic.
Benedict cumberbatch was absolutely amazing and deserves every award that he can receive. His portrayal of a tormented young man trying to survive in the world was brilliant.
Painful at time to watch but the way the story unfolded was spectacular and rewarding in the end.
