The Dresser (1983)

Rated PG

The Dresser is a story about an ageing star with a traveling Shakespearean theater group and his dresser. I thought that Albert Finney and Tom Courtenay were phenomenal in their performances. They take us backstage of the theater during a night of King Lear. The film is based on the stage play with the same name by Ronald Harwood. I did have some feeling that it was a play but overall, it looks great as a film as well. I especially think that it work well because of the actors. It surprised me and I love films that surprise me.
