Fifth about The Seventh

Hobson’s Choice

Hobson's ChoiceHobson’s Choice: interesting little farce that, however, ends up being a bit disappointing. The issue here is that the main characters are not engaging enough, so establishing an emotional connection with the story is hard. They are, nevertheless, well-played by the cast, that showcase all the buffoonery with gusto; few actors could play the title character as well as Charles Laughton. It is very well made; David Lean, known mostly (but not only) for the big (and also intimate) epics from later in his career, uses the camera beautifully to tell the story.
