the fifth estate movie


As we all know, the guardian loves Peter Capaldi so it seemed especially apt when he was cast as Alan Rusbridger – who has just stepped down as its editor after an incredible twenty years – in The Fifth Estate.   

Unfortunately, the film can pretty much be summed up as when a terrible script happens to excellent actors and really doesn’t do credit to well, anyone or anything, but still, it’s the thought that counts, right? 

(And actually the real truth is I don’t even care how bad the film is because Peter’s hair is fantastic and as far as I’m concerned that makes up for any number of dire cinematic sins.)
