I saw the trailer of De-Lovely long before the movie was screened in cinemas. I knew I would wanna watch it in the cinema, but for some reason, I missed it. I thought this movie would make a big opening, as the trailer looked awesome to me, it didn't turn out as grand as I thought. Anyhow, I had a chance to watch this DVD a few days ago, and I have to tell you, I love it. This is a biography, a love story, and a musical (broadway) show, all in ONE package. I am amazed by the quality of the movie. Not only that the plot was well written, all the singings and dancing are genuinely good too. Basically, it's a biography of Cole Porter, one of the greatest broadway song writer in US. Kevin Kline did a wonderful job in playing the role. I never know this man can sing, and play piano! Ashley Judd is such an epic beauty! I could definitely get the 'Audrey Hepburn' kind of feeling from her. To me, no one could do a better job than her. In addition to these two leading actor/actress, you get to see some famous singers in the show. Robbie Williams, Sheryl Crow, Natalie Cole, Diana Krall, Alanis Morissette, just to name a few. All the songs are terrific, and according to the director of the movie, there are 30 songs in it! It is so broadway!
If you're looking for a great Christmas present idea, go get this DVD. If you're looking for a great movie to watch, go rent/buy this DVD. I hope you'll enjoy the show as much as I do.
