A Liitle Gem!By jch21c1 (42 reviews) from Halesowen , 06 Jan 2013
[Highly rated reviewer]
[Highly rated reviewer]Definitely for the Radio 4/Classic FM generation this film is a little gem. Sensitively done you wouldn't think this was a thoroughly British film directed by an American, Dustin Hoffman. It is hard to pick out the best performance of Smith, Courtney, Conolly or Collins, but on balance the latter steals the day. Highly recommended.

Operatic QuartetBy a customer , 12 Aug 2013I liked this film as you saw actors and singers who probably were not used to doing films but had been famous in their own way many years ago-it was refreshing to see that. Of course very good acting from the stalwarts Maggie Smith and co. Touching without being sentimental and also making you think of your own future ahead!!
Oldies goodyBy KenDee (5 reviews) , 11 Aug 2013Not the greatest but quite entertaining. Billy Connelly's wit is always worth a viewing. The cast blend in well together.
Most enjoyable...By a customer , 10 Aug 2013Thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Excellent acting. Funny, sad, poignant, happy.... gives you all the emotions and treats the subject of faded glory and growing old with dignity superbly.
