Miss Marie Lloyd, Queen of the Music Hall (2007) short review

A BBC miniseries following the rise and fall of one of the most famous music hall performers of all time. It’s fine, but nothing to get too excited about — you can tell the budget was somewhat limited. The main issue is that the lead actress plays Marie from about age 18 to her 40s-50s — and she just isn’t convincing as young Marie.
