Where to start with this one? We bear witness to the life story of aging Hollywood bombshell, Evelyn Hugo, through the eyes of the journalist she charges with documenting it. A true beacon of female sexuality and sensuality, I found it hard not to like Evelyn, even in her worst moments. From the beginning of Evelyn's story, her heartbreak, ambition, and sexuality were palpable. As she goes through strategic marriages with various powerful men on the backdrop of the 50s and 60s, Evelyn tries to hide her catatonic, decades-long love for fellow actress, Celia St. James. I was enthralled, bewitched, and beautifully devastated. Highly, highly recommend this.
