Bombshell

On the surface this film had a ton of things going for it.  The actors – Lithgow, Kidman, Robbie and an amazing turn by Charlize Theron (side note – when is she ever going to get the respect that she deserves?).  It has a story that is rooted in corruption and sexual scandals.  While the movie moves at a fast pace I looked at my watch when I was sure the film had to be wrapping up and saw that it was only half-way done.  It’s hard reviewing this kind of film because I feel that assigning it a watch-ability rating almost cheapens the importance of the subject matter.  And it isn’t even that it was slow or not watchable – I was actually enjoying it.  It just felt like a much longer movie.
