The Lesson

The Lesson ★★★½

None of us were privy to the casting process for here, but I sincerely hope, with my entire heart, that they opened a bottle of champagne after locking in Richard E. Grant. He plays J.M. Sinclair, a fabulously successful and comfortably wealthy British author, the kind of fellow who lives on a rambling estate and works out of a plush office surrounded by the great works of literature. Grant is, unsurprisingly, smashingly convincing in the role, which capitalizes on his peerless ability to convey blithe contempt and casual, sneering intellectual superiority.
