Fifth about The Seventh

Genius (2016)

GeniusGenius: Michael Grandage, more than telling the story of a particular friendship, is portraying the story of words and how they can be shaped; it’s a tricky proposition for a film, a visual media. But the words, unruly as they may be, are beautiful, and read accordingly. Colin Firth is quietly spectacular, dignified and subdued; Jude Law, by force of the character, is almost the opposite, loud and large, somewhat annoying as the result. The film is finely (but almost generically) crafted, particularly Mark Digby’s production design and Jane Petrie’s costume design.
