The two leading performances are among the best in the respective actresses' careers, and while the direction could have been much better, those performances, production design and the sometimes witty and clever script rescue the film from mediocrity.

Lange does a pretty good impression of Beale Sr. and Barrymore is almost there as Jr., but they both come off as far better adjusted than the real deal. This parasite of a film attempts to guess around the original documentary, contriving a corny melodrama to stand for the Beales' lives before and after its making. The Hollywood ending especially is thoroughly embarrassing. Watch the documentary instead, for heaven's sake. It is a vastly deeper and more intricate film.

An interesting and very successful adaptation of the excellent original documentary with great performances all around.

The first thing that is striking are the effective lead performances. The simple direction keeps the story straightforward maybe to it's detriment. It's tough to watch characters this damaged. Any attempts at creating sympathy for them did not fly with this viewer.

Would have been much better if it were a documentary staring the real pair...oh wait that has already been done. Accents over substance in this one.
