Being Julia

I actually watched this Saturday night and forgot to post about it yesterday. I suppose that says something about the movie.

This is set in 1930s London where a famous actress (and her manager husband) has been working for decades. She's starting to get bored with the show and asks her husband to close it for a while and bring another company in. Then she meets a young American, starts an affair with him, and suddenly the theatre is interesting again! This movie has lots of plotting, affairs, theatre, and Julia. Annette Benning was very good as Julia, but the movie itself is just cute.
