The Affair of the Necklace

The Affair of the Necklace-  2001, Directed by Charles Shyer, starring Hillary Swank, Jonathan Pryce, Adrien Brody, Brian Cox, Christopher Walken, and Hayden Panettiere
He says-  Handsome but ponderous historical drama- based on real-life events- in which a young woman, seeking to restore her family name and reclaim her home, dares to scheme against Marie Antoinette and the power-hungry Cardinal Louis de Rohan.  Swank's performance lacks fire and charisma, however, and the film itself never ignites.  Narration, by King Louis' house minister (Cox), is heavy-handed and often unnecessary.  2 stars

I say-  Boring!  Great cast, but really convoluted and boring.  Pass please.  BOMB
