Audience Reviews for A Chorus of Disapproval


One of the more strange films seen in a long time. Stars innocent Jeremy Irons and bossy Anthony Hopkins (like you have never seen him act before no doubt). Irons has lost his wife and seeking to meet people, joins a small town theatre group. The story follows a young widower, Guy Jones (Irons), as he joins an amateur operatic society that is putting on The Beggar's Opera. He rapidly progresses through the ranks to become the male lead, while simultaneously conducting liaisons with several of the female cast. This quirky, often weird film has basically a human interest story to tell. All the characters of this theatrical group have been trying to learn a play that struggles on and on. But the real story is the people in the group. Hopkins wife starts an affair with our newcomer Irons. And so on and so on he goes with others in the theatrical tribe. Fans of Jeremy Irons and of course, Anthony Hopkins, will find this quirky, strange movie uh.... interesting. Not a conventional film at all, but that doesn't make it necessarily good.
