Decent movie about two actors Jeremy Irons, and Meryl Streep. I didn't understand most of the movie it was hard to make out what they were saying at times. I wish this movie had an English Transcript which would of made the movie easier to understand. I get that it's a French film but sometimes English is nice if you don't speak much French since many don't in America. Most like 40-49% speak English I think If I'm not mistaken. The others are Spanish(25%), Italian(10%), Albanian(5%), and Hebrew(11%)? Making a total of 100%. 49+25+10+5+11=100.

The metaphorical implications in the movie were amazing.The parallel stories as well as references between the stories was wonderful , it also has interesting message that just because you know something does not mean that you will always act on it

Skip It - French Lieutenant's Woman, The (1981) 124 min. Dull, dull, dull, film about two actors, played by Jeremy Irons and Meryl Streep, that seem to mirror the events in a story of a couple shown in 19th century with those of their own lives. Interesting concept but the dialogue is frightfully boring in every way. The film was nominated for acting (Streep), adapted screenplay, costume, editing and art direction.
