LOVED THIS MOVIE!!
excellent, inspiration film
inspirational film that will make you feel every emotion possible. Judi Dench is amazing and Steve Coogan is impressive.
excellent movie with exceptional performances.
remarkable movie about the human spirit
Excellent movie, really enjoyed it all the way through. Shows how the old nuns acted, which shocks me as a young catholic.
excellent movie - can't believe it is based on a tue story.
a fantastic and emotional movie. Dench and Coogan were great in delivering this true life tragedy to film.
One of the few movies now playing with a good story, great acting and non of that hi-fi, hi-tech stuff. I felt I got my moneys worth.
Best I've seen in a long while. Totally engrossing.
Just excellent and definitely a British finesse from the cinematography to the finely crafted story and depth of the main character. You walk away with a deep message about the life-altering importance of forgiveness. Do go see it!
This was the best film I have seen in a long time. I was very touched by it.
Best movie, best performance by Judy Dench. Movie has everything - illicit love, greed, religion, diabolical church doctrine, love, faith, fantastic success, highest acchievement in government, homosexual love, HIV/AIDS, death, and forgiveness. Got it all. And no effects, just good true story. Much better than fiction!
Loved this movie.
A must see movie. Judi and Steve complement each other. Money very well spent. Enjoy.
Wonderful, emotional movie and great acting. Nice to see a good story - especially intriguing because it is based on a true story. Both leads play their roles well. Great movie for a nice evening out.
My absolute favorite movie of all time! Judi Dench was just wonderful! Can't wait to actually own this movie. Could watch it over and over.
Hard to believe such things happen in recent times like this. So very sad.
A wonderful film!!!
One of the best you'll see this year! Excellent acting of a heartrending true story...loved it.
The best movie I have seen this year. A must see if you like a real story.
Wow !! a movie that will hang with you for a long time
A great movie. Judy Dench again is fantastic
I think this movie is great, made me cry a bit. It couldn't stop thinking about it the next day. Very real and unforgettable.
The best movie I've seen all year. Superb acting by both actors - Judi Dench is awesome. The story is true - compelling, mixed with painful emotions and a little humor. Fantastic.
Judi Dench is superb in this touching story.
It is a movie that was beyond my expectations considering the artistry of both leading actors. The careful balance of pain and humor and the ordinary was brilliant. It is a classic.
Awesome, character driven movie. Well written and acted in a superb understated way by the two leads. Highly recommended bittersweet story! See it in the theater as an antidote to monster blockbusters. This is real movie making at its best.
Judy Dench never ceased to amaze. A tragic yet heart-warming story. A wonderful film in every way
Outstanding performances by J Dench and S Coogan
very nice one! I had good time watching it, performance is great
An Oscar worthy performance by both leads - sad and happy moments for such a heart wrenching story. Enjoyed it immensely.
Great movie, very nice performance
This movie was fabulous! The best Judi Dench performance since Mrs. Brown. Cannot wait to read the book and buy the bluray. Steve Coogan was fantastic too, and the writing top notch. Well done!
Nice performances...how can you go wrong with Judy Dench? The story portrayed the disgraceful behaviour of the church without being sanctimonious. I did find it a wee bit slow however.
What a story...and true. How perfectly the Catholic church was portrayed...breeding guilt, condemnation, while they are completely sanctimonious with not one measure or inkling of any wrong doing. Great cast; not over acted or soppy.
loved it immensely dame dench nailed the part
Judi Dench was spectacular in this movie. A story that makes you realize that there are always good reasons for wise life altering choices. Mindless sex will leave you without a mind or a conscience. Steve Coogan is outstanding
A very touching film! Another outstanding performance by Dame Judy Dench!
Very good movie. Held your interest throughout. Subtle humour incorporated into a serious topic.
I really enjoyed this movie. Judi Dench is outstanding in this one.
