Iris
2001
**½
Director: Richard Eyre
Cast: Judi Dench, Jim Broadbent, Kate Winslet, Hugh Bonneville

A finely acted but aimless drama about author Iris Murdoch and her husband John Bailey. The film jumps between the time they met and the time Iris was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Her work plays no part in the film and hence you get a feeling that there is no story here worth telling.
