Feel good greatness
Loved it. Yes it's predictable, but it's just what is needed in these rather sad times! Toni Collette was her usual excellent character and the supporting cast were all great!
The only thing that bothered was the racing just didn't feel "real".
But still loved the movie - watch it, you won't be disappointed.
