    National Theatre Live: Prima Facie

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    A story about the justice system systemically ignoring women's voices told through one woman's voice.

    It's a powerful statement but in all the switching between accents, subtle character changes and third person narrative I got quite muddled, especially in her long fast monologues.

    I am in awe of Jodie Comer, having loved her from her Mad Fat Diary years, and she is a powerhouse supported by excellent set design that draws that line of engaging but not overshadowing.

    Noone does a prison escape film like the French. Quiet and melodic like a diary being read to you. Only a special film can spend 20 minutes on someone sharpening the end of a spoon and it be riveting cinema.

    Meryl Streep got her 20th Nomination for the 2017 Oscars because of this film. I'm not trying to take anything away from that achievement but the Academy is so far up Meryl's ass they can hear her jaw click.
