Blithe Spirit is a 2020 live-action, British, supernatural, romantic comedy based on the 1941 play of the same name. It is rated PG-13 for innuendo and is appropriate for tweens and up.
Actors. This movie is really well cast. All of the principal actors and actresses fit their roles perfectly and do a great job selling their characters.
Story and Pace. The story isn't overly complicated and is more about the interactions between characters than plot. It moves at a great pace that keeps the audiences attention but gives them time to enjoy the zaniness that is going on.
Twists. From the trailer, the story looks pretty straightforward and is up until the end when there are several great twists that took me completely by surprise but didn't feel like cheats. I was quite happy with them.
New Wife and Secondary Characters. The new wife and secondary characters are not very likeable at the beginning and are actually kind of annoying until halfway thru the film. I understand we are supposed to root for the first wife at the beginning, but they could have made the new wife a little less obnoxious, because she becomes quite likable by the end.
What I Would Like To Have Seen
I wish there had been just a little more content. This movie seemed a little too simple until the second half.
