perfect gem
8 August 1999 | by (israel) – See all my reviews

This is simply a perfect gem of a movie. Although well received in its time, it's been somewhat forgotten.

Good writing, sure handed direction and wonderfully performed, especially John Mills and Marjorie Rhodes who both excel in their portrayal of the parents of Hywell Bennett (who never really fulfilled this promising beginning) and his new bride, Hayley Mills in her first adult role.

Its a small, unpretentious film, but don't be deceived there is much, much more than meets the eye.

One that really touches the heart.
