A new addition to the growing body of corporate biopics, this film features excellent acting and a multi-layered, female-centered perspective.
Where The Beanie Bubble slips off course is in structure. Attempting to go back and forth in time, particularly in the final act, and stuffing the tale with quite so many elements (relationships, back stories, even the main character's penchant for plastic surgery) ultimately results in an overstuffed and overly demanding film.
But the lead performances are all outstanding, and this is a fascinating, feminist tale of luck, greed, and ego that captures the zeitgeist in story, character, and look (wardrobe deserves special mention).
You finish the film wondering why it took so long to bring this story to screen.
