Set in 1972, the movie tells a story of a female journalist who tried to uncover the truth behind the mysterious breakup of a celebrated comedy duo 15 years ago. In fact, the breakup came after a body of a dead girl was found in the bathtub of their hotel suite while they ran the country’s most successful telethon for 39 hours nonstop at the other side of the states, thus both celebrities had perfect alibis and neither was accused of murder charge. The deeper she investigated the case, the uglier the truth became…
The movie starred Kevin Bacon and Colin Firth as the famous comedy duo. Both of these veteran actors delivered their usually-high-standard performances. Even though the story has quite a slow pace and too many flashbacks, the ending is surprisingly unpredictable. One could argue that the plot is fabricated too much with coincident and unbalanced character who suddenly stole the spotlight at the end of the movie. Well, to be honest, I think the director is talented in shooting plenty of nudity scenes in this film.
3 Stars out of 5 – recommend for mystery-loving movie-goers. You could try to guess the ending but I am quite sure you won’t get it right.
