MOVIE REVIEW: WASHINGTON SQUARE (Agnieszka Holland, 1997)

F93B6F72-A1D8-450D-995D-0C74E8472752

Even with a wonderfully talented cast that included Jennifer Jason Leigh, Albert Finney, and Dame Maggie Smith, it was still no match with the brilliant ensemble of Ikaw Pa Lang ang Minahal (Queen Maricel 4ever!).

I really liked the glaring differences with its Pinoy counterpart, though (the absolute lack of melodrama and camp, a less caricaturish and more caring Doctor, a restrained yet equally bittersweet ending).

Your adaptation’s next, Miss de Havilland.

Rating: ★★★★☆
