My God does this film look lush and rich with detail and passionate performances and interesting music. But I knew that already. I’m well past being sold to- I’m seeing the thing. All that remains is finding out if Luhrmann and company got too swallowed up in the spectacle and melodrama to capture the true spirit and nuance of the source material.
That Beyoncé / Andre 3000 track is cool though.
The film hits in a few days over a month, on May 10th.
