Stage Beauty

Genre: Comedy; Starring: Billy Crudup, Claire Danes, Tom Wilkinson, Ben Chaplin, Rupert Everett; Director: Richard Eyre; Author: Jeffrey Hatcher; Runtime (in minutes): 105; MPAA Rating: R; Distributor: Lions Gate Films

An odd amalgam of high spirits, lively ambition, and botched execution. It’s the 1660s, when women aren’t allowed to appear on stage and audiences line up to see Edward Kynaston (Billy Crudup) play Desdemona. The movie tends to drag the moment it’s out of drag.
