Eve Stewart: De-Lovely (2004)

Thank you for your patience! This week we’re back to talk about De-Lovely, the next film in our Eve Stewart retrospective. It’s about the musical icon Cole Porter, played with zest by Kevin Kline, as he re-lives the best and worst of his life at the behest of the angel Gabriel (Jonathan Pryce). The film features songs written by Cole Porter, all sung by popular modern musicians. But the question remains: is the film any good?
