Coates (Lawrence of Arabia). You’ve never seen Lopez better than in this film: she’s glamorous, tough, smart and sexy, and managed to undo it all a year later with her singing career. The plot jumps time frames a bit and can be hard to follow if you’re not paying enough attention, but if you are keeping up you’ll be having a marvelous time.
