It has been a few months since I saw the movie so my take is not fresh, however the rating I gave was straight after the viewing and I still stand by it. I was thoroughly engrossed in the movie and found it captivating with superb performances by the actors, however there were two issues with the movie which I was able to overlook, but many others probably are not. The first is the need to suspend disbelief about how a middle-aged woman who clearly also looks as one is not recognized as such and so easily passes for a boy or a man. The second is the need to suspend disbelief about how such a middle-aged woman seems to be desired by almost every man from teenagers to middle-aged men who recognizes her as a woman. I hate to be saying this, but wonderful as the lead actress is, she is unfortunately miscast as she is not the right age for the role at all. Regardless, if you can overlook these hard-to-explain aspects of the movie, you will find an otherwise excellent movie underneath.
