Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Everyone loved it - they expected a sad twist at the end and were delighted that there wasn't one. Lovely film.

A very good film, well acted, the denouement caused a few gasps. Many in tears. Everyone enjoyed it, an excellent Flicks film. A good one to finish our season.

Pleasant romantic Irish flavoured film. Positive response from the audience who quite enjoyed the story etc.
