Notes on a Scandal

I liked the movie ... very much, and the music by Philip Glass ... excellent!

Allmovie: 3.5 / 5
Megacritics: 73/100 [critics' average]
Rotten tomato: 87/100 [critics' average]

Director, Richard Eyre, seems average-good ... well, to be honest I don't know his works much ... Iris seems to be one of his best. Both "Judi Dench"and "Cate Blanchett" performances were great. I did not know Judi Bench, and I had the impression from "Babel" that Cate Blanchett is mediocre! They both nominated for many awards, including:

Best Actress (nom)Judi Dench 2006Academy
Best Adapted Screenplay (nom)Patrick Marber 2006Academy
Best Music Score (nom)Philip Glass 2006Academy
Best Supporting Actress (nom)Cate Blanchett 2006Academy
