A beautiful stage production, that was breathtakingly beautiful. The structure of this movie was amazing. I loved the concept of it literally taking place on a stage. The time frames were amazingly done and I absolutely loved them. The entire production of the film was amazingly done; it literally felt as though I were watching it as a play. I think my favorite part of the movie was the dance sequence, the time and pace of the way that this movie flowed was absolutely mesmerizing, I don’t want to spoil anything, but this sequence of the movie was spectacularly done. The way the director and screenwriter worked this movie, from the tiniest details to incorporating the ill omens and foreshadowing the ending, were, stylistically, mesmerizing.
That being said however, I like Keira Knightley, I really do, I’ve always adored her, but the fact that I could see the bones in her back during the dancing sequence bothered me, she really needs to eat something. Maybe it was the lighting; maybe it’s just how I perceived thing, but it looked as though I could see the bones in her back and it bothered me. Keira Knightley is one lucky girl though, Aaron Taylor-Johnson is one amazingly good-looking dude.
Despite that though, I loved this movie. The cinematography and the adaptation of the movie, like I said, reflecting the stage production aspect of it, was simply mesmerizing. Acting, cast, style, all beautiful. 4/4 ★‘s and an “A”.
