Never too old for a second chance in life...
30 August 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This production was part of the Project Greenlight Australia (PGA), and the last one made under that banner. The previous Greenlight Aussie Project movie was the neat little thriller, Solo (2006), and it enjoyed a modest release compare to this production which was ignored on its initial release. I entered the PGA and only managed to make it in the top 100. As usual a losing competitor would expect the project that did win to be lame, no matter what. In this instant I was very impressed with THE VIEW FROM GREENHAVEN, a very cute warm and heartfelt film about giving yourself a second chance in life regardless of age.

Chris Hayward was perfect for the role and took it on many levels. Wendy Hughes was on par and the rest of the acting troupe was up to scratch. On many levels this reminded me of a Frank Capra film with the many eccentric and lovable characters that give the story that extra boost. Maybe a longer runtime and better script structure would have strengthen the supporting characters and more importantly given more credibility to the main characters.

A very enjoyable movie with some wonderful moments let down by some bland moments.
