A Month by the Lake (1995)

The polite chemistry between Edward Fox and Vanessa Redgrave is the
reason to watch this frothy, light comedy about a pair of Britons
vacationing at a lakeside resort in Italy.   The veteran actors are a
joy to behold, despite director John Irvin's incessant close-ups and
a story that sags toward the end.  Uma Thurman co-stars as an
American nanny whose disposable flirting with Fox gets taken far more
seriously than it should be.  She's also a bit of a sore thumb, here,
in comparison to the more-distinguished acting styles of the others.
From the novella by H. E. Bates.

Grade: B
