Minnie Driver carries this movie on her back. Before 2021, I only really knew her from Good Will Hunting and her brief, but memorable, singing performance in Goldeneye. (Both great in very different ways). But between this, Grosse Pointe Blank, and Big Night, I have a new appreciation for her. Will definitely try to seek out more hidden gems.
Fun to see Goldeneye (Driver and Alan Cumming), GOT (Ciarán Hinds and Aidan Gillen), and Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy (Hinds and Colin Firth) are all very well represented here.
Also the song over the end credits is hilariously awful. Maybe the most mismatched duet I’ve ever heard.
