Variety critic Todd McCarthy‘s glowing review of Roger Michell‘s Venus, posted yesterday from Telluride, Telluride….Telluride! Peter O’Toole, all but locked for a Best Actor nomination, “reigns [with] his first meaty leading film role in perhaps two decades, and the still charismatic and silver-tongued star scores a bull’s-eye.” McCarthy describes this “small-scaled, throughly British entertainment” as “genuinely funny, randy and moving by turns and breezily enjoyable throughout.” The Miramax release has its first press screening today at the Varsity at 4:15 pm. I’ll try and post a reaction sometime this evening…maybe.
