The Professor and the Madman

The Professor and the Madman

Not that I’m hugely clued in on Hollywood these days, but I wondered how I’d never heard of this given the people involved – but it turns out it’s one of those where they swap directors part way through, artistic differences, blah blah blah…  in the end it was an interesting story told in a way that was a bit of a mess.  It seemed to be 3 male actors trying to Seriously Act (or in Sean Penn’s case, PERFORM – aka shout at everything, and gurn when there’s no call for shouting) alongside Stannis Baratheon who just carries on as he seems to in everything he’s in, with Natalie Dormer popping in occasionally to give an Eliza Doolittle impression masterclass.  Eddie Marsan hasn’t even got it mentioned on his Wikipedia page.  👎
