UTTER DRIVEL

Utter drivel nothing memorable.

The lead actress is an insult so bad she she speaks like a factory worker
not a top class Ballerina and the lead man is of the same calibre.

A dreadful bore instead of something that could have been of historical interest.

These producer / directors have no idea.
