I tried this just because of Glenn Close, expecting some sort of cross-dressing “Downton Abbey” that I would turn off after 20 minutes. And after Janet McTeer flashed her breasts, I thought, Here come the contrivances. But I stayed for the whole 113 minutes, never once reaching for the remote. This is an amazing little character-driven film. Glenn Close is in complete control of the uniquely repressed title character and the screenplay embodies the symmetry that defines good storytelling.
