Crimson Petal and the White is a book about an 1870s prostitute named Sugar. romola garai is SOOOOO untalented & hard to look at.it won all sorts of awards for the makeup but i dont understand,its very badly applied(i get shes supposed to be sickly & pale from working at night but she looks like a corpse).
they cast a lot of male comedians(mark gatiss & chris o'dowd) but it doesnt make sense because its not a comedy.the men are disappointing but shirley henderson is very talented. amanda hale plays a crazy woman(as usual) & steals every scene she is in. the plot is sort of weird because you have to guess what romolas motivation is because she cannot act.
