“Reunited”

My mom and I finished watching Parade’s End this evening, and I’m not going to post a real review or even talk too long about it, because basically all I can say is:

Parade’s End Parade’s End Parade’s End!

It’s totally gorgeous — handsomely made in every respect: beautifully styled, wonderfully written (of course, Tom Stoppard), and magnificently acted.  Not only is the incomparable Benedict Cumberbatch incredble, Rebecca Hall and Adelaide Clemens are equally, if not in fact even more, phenomenal.  The whole cast is fantastic — Miranda Richardson, Stephen Graham, Rufus Sewell, all kinds of marvelous people.  Everything about it is so, so good.  I just want to lie around in it and absorb it entirely.  Man.
