Notes on a Scandal

type
  • Movie

Sensationally nasty and clever. Cate Blanchett is the art teacher who sleeps with a teenage student, and Judi Dench, in a scary, funny, towering performance, is the spinster with a fixed frown who befriends Blanchett and blackmails her. The film’s true note of scandal is the way it presents Dench’s Barbara as a lesbian of exotic treachery.
