I’m featuring Alan Rickman a day early this weekend because this simply can’t wait. Someone should have warned me about this, preferably while I was still lying down in bed. People are all hot and bothered about left-leaning Jane Fonda playing Nancy Reagan, but life-long Labour supporter Alan is playing her husband Ronnie? I really didn’t like Ronald Reagan. I’m sure he was a nice guy, but he is our Margaret Thatcher. I’ve disliked characters that Alan Rickman has played in the past, usually owing to his talent as an actor, but this character comes ready-made unbearable for me. What’s this movie about, anyway?
On the other hand, I really hope this one will be good.
