very slow, no meaningful conversation
13 June 2017 | by (pepper22) – See all my reviews

very slow, no intelligent or meaningful conversation.

A waste of time. The director seems just to have placed some ingredients in a kitchen sink such as: some nudity, understanding problems with the daughter, and even cancer to leverage on the emotion of the viewers, making things sensational to watch.

Not realistic sequence of actions. After 71 yrs Lee had all that whisky and took the strong drug, I would expect to see him in coma in the next picture, instead he was in his best shape like a 25 years old man.

The only thing a bit original was Lee's speech during the award ceremony that he passed to Diana.

Do not waste your time, there are many movies out there that are much better
