wonderful...
21 March 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

i just watched this on a virgin Atlantic flight, and even though you probably couldn't see a film in a worse format (other than on an ipod!), i thought it was a beautiful film about love on many levels...

all the performance were superb and the movie completely evoked the feel of the 50's without resorting to tired clichés...

and i have to confess that i spent most of the last 20 minutes with tears streaming down my face...

i am hoping that the title is available on DVD somewhere, as i would love to see the film on a widescreen TV...

i highly recommend this film!!
