You know it’s rude to read a persons diary, it’s private! We watched Notes on a Scandal (2006) with our friend Paul from That Aged Well Podcast and sometimes we all feel like bitter old virgins. New art teacher Sheba Hart (Cate Blanchett) catches the attention of cynical “battle ax” Barbara Covett (Judy Dench). Sheba’s affair with a fifteen-year-old student becomes a tool in Barbara’s plot to manipulate and possess Sheba and the antics ensue. The “predatory lesbian” tropes aside, this movie is high-camp melodrama worthy of midnight screenings and drag queen lip syncs. The once mousy Sheba taunting Babs with her own diary entries has us cackling every time. “You think this is a love affair?!” The intense score by Phillip Glass and the tight 92 minute runtime only add to the list of reasons to watch this movie today!
