This movie is excellent!
7 May 2013 | by (San Luis Obispo, CA) – See all my reviews

Let me start by saying I'm NOT a fan of musicals or Glee. As a matter of fact, I can't stand them unless its a musical with good music like Rock of Ages or Mamma Mia. Anyhow, this movie blew me away. I haven't been this captivated by music in a movie and the characters in so long. I loved Minnie Driver's performance and her voice is amazing. She sings a rendition of Going Back by Carol King that is just beautiful. The kids are so talented, too. I see big things for Aneurin Barnard. I really recommend this film if you like those British indies like The Full Monty, Billy Elliot, and Brassed Off, I also recommend it if you are a fan of David Bowie, ELO, The Beach Boys, the Byrds and Nick Drake. The soundtrack is excellent and I listen to it a lot. I don't review movies all that often, but this one was so worth it to me. I'm surprised at some the meh reviews because its way better than that.
