Stage Beauty (2004) short review

Much better than I thought it would be!  Billy Crudup is really quite mesmerizing as the leading actor-who-portrays-women in Restoration England, while Claire Danes is a bit out of her league as the maid/aspiring actress who leads the way for women to play women.  Although Danes’s hair is a bit weird, her dresses get really gorgeous and quite period imho once she gains success.
