ETA: Feeling really guilty now about being so harsh about the film 😦

Comments on Fantastic Beast and the fantastic Mr Eddie Redmayne are on that blog, behind cuts and with spoilers in white font: https://filmbelatedetcetera.wordpress.com/

A friend says to merge the film and ballet blogs together, but I haven’t the heart to. Because the other is quite harsh, and this is not.
