Review: ‘Marilu’

Deception is the key element in the early-1960s, Dublin-set "A Man of No Importance." While it initially reveals itself as a larkish, romantic ode to a bygone time, it evolves darker tones and comes perilously close to full-bore tragedy by fade-out. Commercially, it's an uneasy mix, requiring very special handling to reach a niche audience. Critical response will play a crucial part in acceptance internationally.
