I can honestly say that I was delighted with this film. I knew absolutely nothing about it and then was overjoyed upon discovering it was one of the most uplifting films I have encountered for a long time. The writing is superb, telling a story that’s compelling and funny with an appropriate air of melancholia, combined with characters the audience easily connects with to create an three dimensional film with substance. For me, the outstanding performances from Asa Butterfield, Sally Hawkins, Rafe Spall and Eddie Marsan really elevate the film and give it a beating heart. Watch it now!
