      Bob Thomas Associated Press Too much of the film deals with the dull court machinations, leaving the actual discovery with little punch. Jul 25, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Well Fredric March isn't bad, and some of the settings are nice to look at, but that's about it here. Not exactly brimming with historical accuracy, but that was to be expected. A supporting cast I'd never seen before, and for the most part wouldn't care if I saw again. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews
