John and JulieBy a customer from Farnborough , 18 Nov 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]I remeber seeing this as a child, it has to be said that the first 30 mins is a bit twee , however the storyline gets better in leaps and bounds and the atmosphere of London during the Coronation shines through, this is one of those movies that will make you laugh out loud and be wishing that it went on longer. Highly recommended for a Sunday afternoon family sit down.

coronation joyBy a customer , 27 May 2013very enjoyable light hearted film event around the Coronation, with a clutch of British character actors some really big names later on in early roles well rated
Magical nostalgiaBy AngieIan (13 reviews) , 19 Dec 2011An enchanting, beautifully contrived film, with charming performances from the two young leads who are never upstaged by the adult stars. A nostalgic image of London at the time of the Coronation. Highly recommended.
Utterly CharmingBy Bwildfoot (33 reviews) from London , 29 Dec 2010
[Highly rated reviewer]If you can swallow the over-riding monarchistic frenzy about the Queen's coronation, this is a really sweet film about two kids who run away from home. There's a very European ethos to the picaresque narrative, heightened even more when the kids are separated in London and find themselves relying on the kindness of a variety of great thumbnail sketches of London society; especially the unbelievably euphemistically-portrayed Soho prostitute.
As I rememberedBy TheJiveMaster (2 reviews) from Southampton , 08 Apr 2010This film seemed to be the mainstay of ITV's Sunday afternoon matinee's in the late 1970's and early 1980's. I must have seen it 2 or 3 times back then and never knew the title.
The film follows two young children from Dorset as they travel to London to watch the Queen's Coronation. Their jounrey is beset by problems throughout.
It was a joy to watch this film again and see England in 1953. I would recommend this film to anyone who wants an hour and a half of nostalgia.
Lovely nostalgiaBy a customer from Abingdon , 18 Dec 2009Lovely innocent film. Reminds me of my childhood.
