The book Doris is reading is "A SEAL at Heart" by Anne Elizabeth. See more »


When Doris is at the diner with her co workers, the shots go back and forth with angles. Each time the angles change, the drink for the female co worker has inconsistent placement. In one shot she can be seen lifting it up to her mouth to drink, and the very next shot it is down on the table again and we can see her lifting it up to her mouth again. This continues throughout the entire scene. See more »

A truly pleasing film...
5 May 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I want to write a fair, balanced, impartial and pertinent review of this film... but it's difficult.

The problem is... it's near perfect. It is clever and inventive in it's conception, beautifully constructed and crafted in it's form, musically enchanting... and importantly... not infested with formulaic Hollywood nonsense.

The actors do everything that is expected of them, (and more in the cases of Sally Field and Tyne Daily), there is zero CGI... and the swearing is limited (and confined) to the sort of swearing real people engage in. Healthy, gutsy, robust 'effing' and blinding. Also... no swords, elves, planets or vampires intrude on the fun.

We all have our own preferences when it comes to entertainment I like my music intricate and embracing, I like my novels to be difficult to define... and I like my films to be addictive... (at least for the duration of the film). I like to know I will definitely watch it again...and that I will laugh and care the same way I did the first time around.

A truly pleasing film. I'm in my sixties too... Sally Field is 'effing' gorgeous.
