Well, I was looking forward to watching this movie. As the minutes went by I kept waiting for it to engage me on some level but it seems I waited in vain. If the struggle for women's right to vote was as tepid as this movie we would still be waiting. Vanessa Redgrave's character gave me the creeps, Christopher Reeves chauvinistic southern man's accent was terrible and the young heroine had the backbone of a jellyfish. Do not waste your time,as I did, on this movie. I know that with all the talent involved in this film it is hard to believe it is so boring but it is. 1/10

The Bostonians is great window on the world of Henry James and the upper class society in which he moved in New York and Boston. James was a great evaluator of human nature even of the love that dare not speak its name. It also got a nomination for Costume Design and the shooting in Boston and New York are fine. Boston has kept a lot of the same look Henry James knew in certain areas of the city and James Ivory made great use of Central Park in New York and some of the structures there that were put up in the time of Henry James.
