The Bostonians [Review] | AndersonVision
The Bostonians is one of the 800 Merchant Ivory films released in the 1980s. While I love seeing Christopher Reeve branch out into deep drama, he comes across super odd in the film. Over the years, the film has been read as many things. Was Christopher Reeve playing a predator stalking Madeleine Potter? Could Vanessa Redgrave's character have been meant to be a politically minded lesbian? The mind boggles at the Henry James goodness.
