A Little “Cheri,” Cheri?

cheriThis review of Stephen Frears’ new movie, “Cheri,” starring Michelle Pfeiffer (pictured), may be lukewarm, but I’m still eager to see it. Money quote: “Driven along by Alexandre Desplat’s busy score, scrumptious duds by Consolata Boyle, pastel-tinged widescreen lensing by Darius Khondji and, most of all, by Kathy Bates’ scene-stealing turn, this Frears-Christopher Hampton adaptation of Colette’s famous Belle Epoque tale of romance between an experienced older courtesan and a spoiled youth is, like Pfeiffer’s lead perf, short on real passion and emotion.”
