Gorgeous Cast Fun story

"Who knew that Beau Brummell was the tabloid celebrity of his day. James Purefoy is just amazing as Beau - the man that changed the way men dressed. Matthew Rhys from Brothers & Sisters has a small but great role as Lord Byron.
The music is very catchy and I just had fun with this story."
WORTH THE WAIT !

"Period dramas are my favorite type of movie. James Purefoy (Rome,Vanity Fair, Mayor of Casterbridge, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, Mansfield Park)is one of my favorite actors, so this movie was destined to be a favorite! Historically it is of great value. Just think, if it weren't for Beau Brummel, our men might still wear ruffles. The most excellent supporting cast includes Hugh Bonneville(also of Mansfield Park)and Matthew Rhys. My only complaint is that this movie is too short. I am sure this story deserves more than it's length of only 79 minutes and someone should be "horse whipped" or at least ashamed of the stunted state of this production. Now, if we might only be able to purchase "Blackbeard" starring James Purefoy, on DVD as well! One may only hope!"

"If you are a James Purefoy fan, this movie is a must. Very entertaining. James is absolutely adorable in this, his acting and his presence."
