Cole Porter, the rich Gay guy & Music
Wonderful creative story telling with some really good Cole Porter music. I particularly liked the way the director intertwined the sequences. As for researching Porter, I am indifferent to the rich guy, whose mother crammed her son down the public's throat. You wonder, since his music took a turn from the slap-happy stuff (after he married) to a more serious tone, if his wife wrote the last and the best of Porter.

De Lovely is De Magnificent
This movie is very underrated with critics. It deserves much better than it got.
Kevin Kline is great as the real Cole Porter with all his blemishes intact--especially his homosexual lifestyle hidden behind the true heroine of the movie, his wife Linda, also played wonderfully by Ashley Judd.
The movie is sort of like an opera, showing Cole Porter from his beginnings as a bit player-entertainer at parties in Paris. It showcases many of his songs--some of which appear naturally in the story and others that are sung by some of the biggest musical stars of today. Sheryl Crow performs "Begin the Beguine." Alanis Morissete sings "Let's Do It." Elvis Costello sings the title song.
We follow Cole and Linda from their courtship in Paris, to their years in Venice where he met and worked with Irving Berlin, to his Broadway years, to his years in Hollywood. We see him lose his leg to an accident while riding a horse. We see Linda separated from him several times, but she was truly his soulmate and biggest fan. And yes, they did have a sexual relationship. Linda's biggest sorrow was a miscarriage the night of the opening of "Begin the Beguine." When she died, they were together. Cole Porter was pretty much lost after that.
This movie is one that you will want to watch again and again. The music is fabulous and has been updated to the styles and sounds that we expect in 2007. The costumes and scenery are fabulous. This is not just a musical. It is a biography of a flawed man that is saved by a wonderful woman.Read full review
