Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Lovely, romantic story, beautiful music.

The film left some people confused but on the whole it was well received. A number of regulars didn't attend.

I had only seen the trailer - I am not sure I felt that it warranted so many awards - and quite a number of the audience agreed with me. A good film perhaps - but not up there with Oliver, My Fair Lady, Oklahoma etc. in my view and those of others tonight.
