Two early reviews of The Chaperone, the film

The Chaperone, the yet to be released PBS Masterpiece film based on Laura Moriarty's bestselling novel of the same name, was recently screened at the Los Angeles Film Festival (LAFF). And so far, there have been two major reviews, one in The Wrap, and one in The Hollywood Reporter. Disappointingly, neither are especially glowing in their praise of the over-all film, though each singles out Haley Lu Richardson for her portrayal of the young Louise Brooks.

I haven't seen the film myself, as their don't seem to be any screeners available. I will reserve judgment for the time being. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film is set for release in May, 2019 - which seems to be yet another delay. That's not a good sign, as the film has been completed for some time.

‘The Chaperone’ Film Review: Jazz Era Coming-of-Age Story Could Use More Flap: Los Angeles Film Festival 2018: Haley Lu Richardson steals the show in this period piece adapted by "Downton Abbey" creator Julian Fellowes appeared in The Wrap and then in the London Telegraph. Not surprisingly, there is considerable interest in this production (with its many Downton Abbey connections).
