5.0 out of 5 stars A Scandal Indeed Oct. 3 2012
By webbkat
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
*Spoiler alert* This film is based in the U.K. and is from the point of view of an elderly woman (Judi Dench) who teaches as a local public school. A new art teacher (Cate Blanchett) arrives and the two become good friends, the older woman wanting a little bit more than just friendship though. Suddenly, she discovers the art teacher is having an affair with one of the students and the story takes off from there. The acting is just wonderful and I don't tire of watching this movie.

Very good drama - admired both performances. Unusual part for Dame Judi Dench, who is amazingly versatile, and always believable.

4.0 out of 5 stars watch for the actors Aug. 5 2007
Sheba Hart (Cate Blanchett), the new art teacher, meets Barbara Covette (Judi Dench), the history teacher; they soon become friends. Barbara is lonely with her cat while Sheba has a husband (Bill Nighy), a son with Down Syndrome, Ben (Max Lewis) and a teenage daughter, Polly (Juno Temple).
One night, Barbara discovers Sheba's relation with 15-year-old student Steven Connolly (Andrew Simpson). Barbara will also embark on an inappropriate relationship with Sheba.

I can not for the life of me, figure out *why* Sheba would be interested in Steven. There is no magnetism between them, and Simpson's character evidently has no appeal, no charisma...

Despite this, those were great performances by Dench and Blanchett, although at times it seemed that they overacted.
Nighy is an excellent actor, whom I've never seen before. (I'll have to find out what else he played in.)

The plot itself was way too basic and dull to be anything but interesting. The ending was predictable.

Worth watching only for the actors' performances.
(I watched for the Dench-Blanchett match, and a match it was!)
4 stars for the actors.

4.0 out of 5 stars There's too many lonely people in this world June 23 2007
By Jenny J.J.I. TOP 500 REVIEWER
Food, water, clothing and shelter are the things human beings need to physically survive. But our highly evolved brains require something else as well: connection. We seek it through friends, lovers, music, pets, soap opera characters and in certain desperate situations probably soccer balls. Without it, we will surely go mad. Mad like the aptly named Barbara Covett (Judi Dench), who, in turns her attention to a new co-worker in her desperate, endless quest to... connect.

Both Barbara and newly hired Sheba Hart (Cate Blanchett) are teachers at a British high school. Embittered Barbara has retreated into a position of being feared enough to baby-sit her students without incident. Told through the icy, disturbing prose of Barbara narrating from her diary, "Notes on a Scandal" is a brilliant, unflinching look into the dark heart of loneliness. Dench is amazing: It would be easy enough for the story to view Barbara as a diabolical spinster fiend looking to ruin the happiness of the poor, nice people around her. After all, Hollywood made that movie a couple dozen times in the years following Fatal Attraction. Both of the film's lead characters are morally corrupt, though it is hard not to feel sympathy for the pair of them. Playing against type effectively, Dench's Barbara ranges from such monstrous and reprehensible selfish acts of manipulation, but then the fragility and loneliness with which Dench endows her forbids us from condemning her completely. Meanwhile, Blanchett makes us sympathise with the well-painted Sheba, trying to escape her everyday life with her Down's Syndrome son and older husband (the wonderful Bill Nighy).
