Fleming: The Man Who Would Be Bond

Review
This slick Ian Fleming biopic, covering his time as a World War II spy up to his decision to try writing, explains the origins of titles like GoldenEye, though Octopussy remains a mystery. The sex scenes are a bit Shannon Tweed, but the affair between Fleming (Dominic Cooper) and Ann (Lara Pulver) is nicely done. Shame the ending’s given away so early.
