Mona Lisa Smile (Usmiech Mony Lizy)


Artykuł pochodzi z pisma "New Warsaw Express"

This plays almost exactly as it looks in the trailer. No one really believes that a film with Julia Roberts in the lead can be a hard-hitting feminist attack on the sexual stereotypes into which American women were forced in the 1950s – and, hey, we're all right. Where something like Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe managed to be entertaining and mainstream and give knowing insight into the female experience in the American South, Mona Lisa Smile is just plain bland. Wow, were people uptight before the 60s – aren't you amazed?
Roberts is a "bohemian" art teacher (i.e. she listens to jazz) who turns up at a stiff girls' college to teach the nation's brightest – and finds they all just want to get married and do the tea party and kids thing. My, how depressing. So, naturally, she takes notes from Dead Poets Society and… changes them all. It's not very convincing – girl ensemble movies like this need stronger centres than Roberts (see Fried Green... or Steel Magnolias for reference) and better writing than "Four Weddings'" director Mike Newell can provide. The film does collect some class acting talent (Kirsten Dunst, Marcia Gay Harden, Maggie Gyllenhaal) but forces them to play to stereotypes they have to throw away quickly in the last reel anyway. In the end, it's just annoying.
