Charlotte Gray (2001) short review

It’s really too bad that this film wasn’t better, given that I loved the book and Cate Blanchett is amazing.  Nonetheless, the filmmakers managed to cheese-ify the story (oh, and change the ending).  Blanchett is beautiful as the title character, if just a wee bit unbelievably well-dressed and well-made-up for an English secret agent hiding out in France.
