Tamara Drewe

Review: Tamara Drewe

05 Mar 11

Comedy Born in Village Lies

Ostensibly a comedy set in a village retreat with a famous egocentric author, his slavishly devoted wife, a coterie of writers and house guests, a hunky handyman, a newly returned and remodeled temptress (namely Tamara Drewe) and two bored schoolgirls infatuated with a visiting rock star. Dig beneath the surface and you'll find cracks in this Pleasantville: betrayal, lies and deception, the unraveling of a one sided marriage, cowardly acts and the eventual redemption of love. A village soap with comic and dramatic elements. Tamara Drewe offers moments of fun and dark pithy reflection.
