    1. Enjoyed reading the script - only saw the movie one time, back when it was released around 20 years ago and liked it (apart from the bit where he yells, "Secrets And Lies!" in an otherwise grand monologue near the end; it was as if anyone watching might have forgotten the name of the film or something). Good taut script too. The dialogue is sharp, there's not a lot of room there but the 'acting' around the dialogue helps to flesh out the class/race/family issues.

    2. Excellent movie and screenplay that won the Palme d'or at Cannes. Explores divisions between races, classes, genders and families in a non-stereotypical and ultimately warm manner.
