"I enjoyed The Hustle... Always nice to see Anne Hathaway in comedies...wondering if Meryl coached her on all those accents!" - me

"My friend and I watched Under the Silver Lake last week and to this day, I still don’t know what it is about. 😔Same friend insisted that we watch Wine Country on Netflix and somehow only the white wine joke made me laugh." - goodbar

NYFF: Isabelle Huppert as "Mrs. Hyde"

by Jason Adams

Isabelle Huppert walks out and stands in front of her classroom in Serge Bozon's Mrs. Hyde and she seems to disappear into the wall - the chalk on the chalkboard has more color than she does. She's paste in sensible shoes. We first meet her being harangued publicly by her students, and in a slow painful succession of scenes she's humiliated by everyone she comes into contact with. This is no Huppert Dragon Lady, then.

And then, voila, she's struck by lightning. And given what we drag into the movie theater with us, given this film's title, we think to ourselves, "Cue the dragon!"

So the most interesting thing about Mrs. Hyde is simultaneously its most frustrating thing - it's as if Bozon took it as a challenge to deny us what we came to this movie for.
