Notes on a Scandal Reviews

    I am struggling to understand why people think so highly of this. We found much of it implausible and the dialogue wooden. I accept that melodrama has a logic of its own but this is just wrong on so many levels.

    I've seen this a few times now and its still great. Chilling performance from Judi Dench as she spars with the elegant Cate Blanchett in a great psychodrama. Love the narration and how it was worded by Judi Dench. Great from Bill Nighy . I felt the first half of the movie was strongest where in the second half once Judi turned psychotic it started to get melodramatic. Still it ended well and there was a conclusion. Great movie

    A solid movie with very good acting. I found this movie too be just as much about a school teacher having an affair with a student as the power of manipulation.

    I'm a JImmy come lately to this movie. "Carol" turned me on to Cate Blanchett...yeah yeah I know, my cave is at 123 Blanc street. Enjoyed this movie and was surprised that it was a more demanding role than "Carol". It gave her an opportunity demonstrate her wealth of talent. The writing and acting was powerful.

    Brilliantly acted by the leading ladies. Cate Blanchett is a miracle, beautiful miracle you can't look away.

    It doesn't ring true, but the performances are good.

    With perfect interpretations from both Judi Dench and Cate Blanchett and this strong and thrilling story, "notes on a scandal" easily deserves to be watch. It's the best erotic thriller of the 10 last years. But be warn, the movie is a little bit disturbing.

    At the end of your teenage years you'll grow unable to differentiate between fantasy and reality.
