REVIEW: The most unusual and enchanting musical in years, this cinematic ode to legendary composer Cole Porter is at once buoyantly fun and heartbreaking beautiful. Kevin Kline is perfection as the elegant and deeply complex Porter in a film that offers knockout performances from Natalie Cole, Elvis Costello, Sheryl Crow, Diana Krall, Alanis Morissette and Robbie Williams, and melancholy, wit and style to burn.
From Paris to Venice to Broadway to Hollywood, the lives of Cole (Kline) and Linda (Ashley Judd) Porter were never less than glamorous and wildly unconventional. And though Cole’s thirst for life strained their marriage, Linda never stopped being his muse, inspiring some of the greatest songs of the twentieth century.
