Great feel good movie involving song and geezers

Everyone acted superbly. The foursome were very strong, but I have to accord kudos as well to Sheridan Smith (Dr. Cogan), Gwyneth Jones (Anne Langley), Michael Gambon (Cedric Livingston), Trevor Peacock (George), among many others. The pacing was good, scenery fabulous (maybe a bit overdone, but in keeping with the pomp required by the movie content), plot (laced with some real life musicians and singers) was predictable but still captivating. The only possible flaw was that everything was so neatly tied together at the end

Warm And Loving, A Very Pleasant Film.

While this film might appeal to a mostly older demographic, explanation for its limited release, it none the less delivers an engaging and entertaining audience experience. Produced and directed by Dustin Hoffman, the scene constructions show a legendary actor's touch. While this film has no superheroes (costumed ones anyway), fancy special effects, or exotic locations, it delivers a decently entertaining screenplay with solid performances. See it. You won't be disappointed.

Wonderful dialogue and interactions between characters that are real people. Maggie Smith never, never disappoints! The cast is made up of real musicians and vocal artists who perform throughout the film, which is incidental but very enriching.

Underrated. Superbly-acted and directed, very funny--a laugh a minute, heart-warming and true. Why hasn't this film been more widely distributed? Is someone afraid it wouldn't appeal to younger or mass audiences? L.

If you like these great Englsh actors and actresses and you enjoy classical music, you will definitely enjoy this movie. If not, then you probably won't.
