It would be overpraise to propose that Flawless reviews itself with its title, but... how about "supremely decorous"? It is, at any rate, a film that merits a grateful salute from audiences weary of being beaten about the ... more »

A movie with a message
I must say I was quite impressed with this movie. Excellent acting, filming, directing, script, wonderfully executed, and you are completely taken in. I love a movie that makes you think. This one did. At least, it made me think. It is, however, rated PG-13 for brief strong language for a reason. I believe they cursed two or three times in the entire movie, every time was strong. If it was not for the language it could easily be PG.
While the plot itself was wonderful the best part came at the very end of the movie. I was, to be completely honest, shocked at the final message the movie sent to its viewers (mentioned below under "spoilers"). I absolutely recommend seeing this movie.
WARNING: SPOILER AHEAD.
The final message of the movie shocked me because the entire film had, in a sense, been about a woman making it in a man's world. At the end of the film we hear that the woman actually never discovered herself until after she got out of the business world and stopped trying to "prove" herself to herself and others. She discovered who she was by helping others outside of "work." It was a refreshing message, and to have that delivered after such a great plot and story was very memorable and impacting.

With the acting talent in this movie, it should have been better, but it is good enough to watch more than once, but it is not a keeper.

"Review from [...]
Laura Quinn, living in 1960s London, had to work harder than any man to get her prestigious job at the world's most famous diamond corporation, simply because she was a woman. When Mr. Hobbs, the building's janitor, gives her the information that the company is planning on firing Laura simply for being a smart woman, Laura is enraged.
It is because of her anger and shock that she agrees to help Mr. Hobbs steal a few diamonds from the vault. The amount will be so small that the company won't even notice, but it'll turn a tidy profit for the two of them.
Imagine Laura's surprise when, the morning after the robbery was supposed to take place, the vault is completely empty! Thousands, if not millions of dollars worth of diamonds were taken, and, as you can imagine, the corporation's insurance company is less than willing to pay for them.
As a full-on investigation takes place, Laura is forced to solve the mystery by herself. She won't turn herself or Mr. Hobbs in, and Mr. Hobbs won't tell her anything. Laura must use her own wits to discover how and why the seemingly impossible robbery took place.
I absolutely LOVED Flawless! The plot is clever and unique, with twists that keep the watcher on the edge of his/her seat. I was surprised this movie didn't get more marketing and attention; it was fabulous."
