Film review: ‘The Honourable Rebel’ ★★

Adapted from a book of the same name, Mike Fraser’s docudrama The Honourable Rebel (2015) certainly draws on enough material to make it worthy of a 95 minute biopic. The eventful life and times of the right honourable Elizabeth Montagu – whose family home, Beaulieu Palace House, will be known to many a car enthusiast – should make for enthralling viewing. A highly intelligent, multi-lingual and frequently controversial aristocrat, she engaged in same-sex and heterosexual relationships, and acted as a spy during World War II.

The Honourable Rebel has a limited release in the UK and Ireland on Friday 4th December – visit CineVue here to read the full review.
