The film is adapted from the 1958 novel by Paul Gallico. I love Lesley Manville and think she is great. The first time I remember seeing her was in the fantastic film Phantom Thread (2017). Lovely to see Isabelle Huppert who is another great actor. As my followers will know it is always lovely to see the great Jason Isaacs (and yes, he still has that twinkle!). He is always so watchable and a pleasure to see. Jason Isaacs said in an interview at the night of the premier that he was terrified to make this film, as it was during lockdown, but that the director was amazing and made the atmosphere safe for everyone involved and also fun. I believed in all the characters who were all very human. I very much enjoyed the musical score by Rael Jones. The atmosphere of the 1950’s felt so real. This is a film that the whole family can sit down to and enjoy which is pretty rare these days. It is total entertainment. This is a film that is a delight to watch and also just transport you into another world while watching. I was so disappointed when this film ended and wanted to go straight back into the screening to watch again!
