Mostly thanks to Rupert Everett’s comic rôle, this film is funny and overall enjoyable as a bundle of a fascinating and true historical tale, wrapped up with humor and good tempo. It’s a trifle, and enjoyable as such. Many an Ooh, vicar! joke is found is here, but it’s no Carry On-film. A funny reminder not to let other factors – e.g. gender – ruin intelligence.
