NOTES ON A SCANDAL
I was really looking forward to the film NOTES ON A SCANDAL, starring Cate Blanchett and Judi Dench. The subject matter, an attractive female teacher having an affair with an underage student, seemed full of possibilities. Both actresses do their darndest, but the writing was very weak. There were several times where I felt like I was watching a film that was trying to be a comedy but failed. People were laughing... but in the wrong places. Too bad, I hate seeing good performances wasted.
