This film tells a simple but enthralling story brilliantly, centred on a quirky, extraordinary couple living in somewhat chaotic retirement in a small Cumbrian village. The actors are all superb - Richard Johnson and Gemma Jones in particular justify their reputations as two of our finest, most respected artists. Brilliantly directed and shot, the film is hugely moving without being at all sentimental, the script laced with wonderful, surprising humour. Chains like Picturehouse and Curzon should be fighting for the distribution rights.
A brilliant cast, including the kids, set mainly in the fabulous scenery of Scotland, this will make you laugh, bring a tear to your eye and is one of those films that you could happily watch again.
I saw this yesterday with my partner and it had me in pieces. I was laughing the majority of the way through. Definitely a must see film!
The movie is awesome the action is mind blowing and jaw dropping, music epic. All in all a must see movie.
The best film ever!!!
This film is an amazing whirlwind of emotions but the main storyline is based on friendship which is so often lacking in movies aimed at teens these days. While there is a large proportion of the story based on romantic situations, the main idea is Rose and Lissa's friendship which is what essentially saves the day. This is an amazing film and I recommend you watch it whether you have read the books or not.
This film is a fantastic drama of the 80s which reminds me of my 'jumpers for goalposts' days.
Brilliant thriller... Monique was wicked!
Im 13 and I found this book really, really good! It is one of my favourite books! I can't wait to see the movie! :D
This movie looks very interesting and has sparked me to read the novel/series. It has a very interesting plot and hopefully will be brilliant when it hits cinemas, I can't wait to go see it in theatres soon! Effects look good. I've heard that Demi Lovato sings the song accompanying this film, 'Heart By Heart', which is another reason I want to see this!
