"Flawless" (directed by Michael Radford, released in 2007 and rated PG-13) was superb with excellent acting and awesome suspense. Had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. Loved the craftiness of Michael Caine's character "Mr. Hobbs" and the genius of Demi Moore's character "Miss Quinn".
The movie "Flawless" takes place in London 1960. Excellently portrays a woman's struggle to achieving a position in the Executive Branch of a large diamond company. In the very beginning this film makes it very clear that the character "Miss Quinn" was the first of her sex to become a top executive of a corporation in England, paving the way for other women in her field; held no punches about her being overlooked for future promotions in the "Senior Executive" sector. It definitely portrayed how the men in the Executive Branch felt threatened by such an intelligent, well educated, and capable woman. The entire plot is extremely "human" and filled with "revenge" for both characters. Neither one seems to be the type to pull off what they together conspire, a diamond heist from the company they work for. Portrays a very unlikely two person team, one being a janitor and the other a "Senior Negotiator" for the London Diamond Corporation. Loved the surprise ending. Mixed feelings about the two main messages.
My husband who normally does not like Demi Moore or the Heist Film genre, loved this one. He watched the entire movie and asked if there were more like this one made. Seems to be one of those movies that most would enjoy.
A must see! Highly recommend, especially for all Michael Caine and Demi Moore fans. "Flawless" now on DVD; 1 hour 49 minutes in length.
