Dusty – The Original Pop Diva
by John-Michael Howson, David Mitchell & Melvin Morrow
Carroll inhabits Dusty, finding emotional layers and character definition in spite of the very thin dialogue.
Dusty’s internal struggle with her childhood self about her singing and her secret lesbian lifestyle is not sufficiently developed and there are unexplained leaps between periods of her life. We know too little about the real Dusty at the end.
