Description In this handsome period piece perfectly suited for cinephiles of all stripes, director Michael Engler (Downton Abbey, 30 Rock, Six Feet Under) and screenwriter Julian Fellowes (Downton Abbey, Gosford Park) bring a fascinating slice of pre-Hollywood history to light in a coming-of-age story centering on the relationship between the young, free-spirited and soon-to-be international screen starlet Louise Brooks (a riveting, high-intensity Haley Lu Richardson) and her tee-totalling chaperone (a wonderfully nuanced Elizabeth McGovern). On their journey from the conservative confines of Wichita Kansas to the flash and sizzle of New York City, both women are driven by a kindred desire for self-discovery and liberation from the past. Based on the book by Laura Moriarty and anchored by a superb supporting cast (Miranda Otto, Géza Röhrig, and Blythe Danner in a key cameo), The Chaperone is a sensitive, resonant, and illuminating tale of women's lives in the early 20th century.

The chaperone (1999) * (out of 4) Two different groups of people meet up at a farmhouse in the countryside. One group is a family of seven headed by father and mother, while the other is the eldest daughter of the family. In the end the girl reveals her secret and this creates a very interesting story. I think the best thing about this film is that it's based on a true story. In this case it's about a girl named Amelie who is a tomboy who works at a clothes shop. The first thing that strikes me about this film is the way that the family interacts. The father is very strict and never allows anyone to come into the family. The mother doesn't allow any outsiders to come into the house. This makes it very difficult for Amelie to have a good relationship with anyone in the family. She also has to constantly change the behavior of her family in order to stay in the same circle. This is all made worse when the mother turns on her daughter. She doesn't allow Amelie to work and instead she forces her to work at the clothes shop. As a result, she becomes very angry with her daughter. I don't think that this is a good example for a father and daughter relationship. I don't think that there's anything good that happens when the mother tries to control the daughter. The mother's frustration is definitely shown in this film and it shows throughout the film. The other thing that I think makes this film interesting is the way that the family is very similar. The mother and daughter work together at the clothes shop and they share a lot of the same issues that the other members of the family have. Another thing that I liked about this film is that it is very realistic. It's very interesting to watch how the family changes as the film progresses. It's definitely one of the better films that I've seen this year and it's definitely a film that I would recommend to anyone. I think that it's a film that anyone should watch. It's definitely one of the better films of the year and it's definitely one that I would recommend.

The Chaperone (2006) * (out of 4) Don't let anyone tell you that this is not a good movie. This is an excellent film. It is directed by Louis Malle, who previously directed the fantastic film L'appartement. Malle's first feature film is an interesting one, with some very interesting performances by his cast and a great soundtrack. The story is set in 1930s New York City, with a young girl (played by the lovely Sandra Bullock) who is living with her father (played by the brilliant and underrated Tom Cruise). Her father is a cynical and wealthy businessman, who is trying to raise her to be his wife. He makes sure that his daughter knows that she is not allowed to speak out of turn and is always in his business. This is a very important lesson, because it prevents her from taking a life of her own. In the film, Bullock does a great job in her role, showing her sensitivity and acting abilities. The supporting cast is also great, with Tom Sizemore and Sean Penn showing up and doing great jobs. The film is a little slow, but that is because of the rather long running time, which is about 70 minutes. The film is very well acted and directed, with many great scenes. I really liked the scene where the father and daughter talk about the past. It is so touching and makes me think about all the things that I would want to do differently in my life. The ending is also very touching, showing the father and daughter moving on. I really liked this film and I hope that it does well in the box office. I give the Chaperone an 8 out of 10.
