Thoughts going in:
This sounds like a movie about lawyers.
This movie is not about lawyers, it’s about a bank heist.
I thought the idea was really cool, but I wish they’d spent more time on the heist itself, maybe with flash forwards and flashbacks, instead of basically tearing Faye Dunaway’s character, ostensibly a strong female character in the beginning, and turning her into a sad, pathetic, lovelorn woman. She’s the fictional representation of what right-wing nuts think will happen if a woman becomes president. She’ll let her emotions take over and fuck everything up. That said, I’m interested in seeing the modern adaptation, because, as I said, I think the idea is very interesting.
