Movie Review – Wicked Little Letters

About a month ago my wife and I went to see, I think, The Beekeeper as a mystery screening. While we were waiting for it to start we saw a trailer for an upcoming British comedy called Wicked Little Letters. Now I know that trailers are designed to make you want to hand over your cash and come and see the film but this one really hit the spot. We both giggled like school kids all the way through it and decided to keep an eye out for it when it was released on 23rd February.

For reasons I have no idea about, there was an early screening last night (Monday 19th) so we arranged a date night and went off to see it. And we had a great night! Wicked Little Letters was a fun film with lots of laughs all the way through. It is funny in a peculiarly British way. You need to remember that we are a nation brought up on naughty jokes, innuendo, and the frequent use of double entendre when we’re trying to be not so obvious. It’s hard but we manage to keep it up somehow.

The Language You Just Used

Wicked Little Letters is based on a real story. Back in the 1920’s, in the seaside town of Littlehampton, a series of letters started arriving on the doorsteps of the genteel, refined gentlewomen of the town. One particularly school ma’am-ish type was Edith Swan and she was singled out for the majority of the letters. Indeed, Wicked Little Letters starts with the arrival of the nineteenth letter sent to Edith (Olivia Colman). Sitting around the table are Edith, her father Edward (Timothy Spall), and her mother Victoria (Gemma Jones).

Edward reads out the letter, actually spits might be more accurate as he is apoplectic, Victoria is distressed to the point of hysteria, and Edith seems bewildered. They are all convinced that the sender of the letters is their next door neighbour Rose Gooding (Jessie Buckley). This is because Rose is a bit of a wild, free spirit. She loves life and spends as little time as possible being miserable, the complete antithesis of the Swans. In post WWI England, Rose was held to be guilty because she was accused by a man and was known to be a bit sweary. 

Indoors…On A Wednesday…

Back then those two factors were enough to get Rose put away to await trial. Swearing was becoming more commonplace as soldiers re-established themselves in society but was only even marginally acceptable when used by men and to men. It was a time when women were, very definitely, second class citizens. If an upright citizen in possession of the appropriately shaped trouser trappings made an accusation against a woman then that was, pretty much, it. If a woman denied or refuted the accusation then that was seen as proof that the woman was mad or a liar.

Love love love this app. And, after receiving an email from Dan (the creator) that read as though it was a one-on-one communication sent only to me, I felt compelled to leave a long-overdue review. My son and I are absolutely addicted to this app…especially since I discovered it at the onset of the Marvel craze. Now we use it to confirm if there is a scene following the credits. Often times, we are the ONLY ones there watching the bonus scene…and it cracks us up. LOL! Thanks, RunPee!

All that makes Wicked Little Letters sound like a very grim affair and, frankly, it could have been if the cast hadn’t really leant into the comedy. Timothy Spall is always good value and really is magnificent as the bigoted, traditional father. Anjana Vasan is delightful as Woman Police Officer Gladys Moss; if eye rolling were an Olympic event we’d have a guaranteed gold! Throw in excellent support from Joanna Scanlan, Eileen Atkins, Malachi Kirby, Lolly Adefope, Paul Chahidi, and Alisha Weir and you have an excellent way to spend an hour and a half. Sweary? Yes. Funny? Yes. Entertaining? Definitely!
