Perfect casting, perfect acting, outstanding cinematography.
THANK YOU Netflix for not letting this go straight to streaming. You just cannot beat the cinema experience and with a score and orchestrations like this you need that Dolby surround sound to appreciate the fullness.
I saw the film as a kid, and as I love musicals, I listened to the soundtrack on Spotify last week and can totally understand why this won so many awards. I would suggest that The Greatest Showman actually copied some of their score as there are so many parities.
The casting is first class, there is not a bad link anywhere in the production and what can I say about Emma Thompson, she is one gifted actress and always commands the screen, never more so than here. She would say that actors don’t saves lives and it’s just a job, but she does it SO well, in the world of awards she totally deserves one for this and ALL her work. Miss Honey had a beautiful voice and amazing actor too, the child lead was equally as outstanding.
I found the story very moving and tears were rolling down my face when ‘Quiet’ started. Yes, I’m a bloke, and unashamedly get emotional at things like this.
A part of my job as a community nurse is Safeguarding children and, although I found the film funny when I was young, not so now, however it was done very responsibly and sent out the right number of messages about ‘telling someone’. I found parts very dark, that originally, I would have been able to view as humorous.
Kids don’t ask to be born do they.
Most people were crying at times, especially at the end so take your tissues!
The filming was done in bright colours which makes a change from the drab brown screen.
The musical numbers were superbly choregraphed and the orchestrations made the hair on the back of my neck stand up.
I will see it again with my family next week, it is THAT good.
Netflix did an amazing job with The Prom too, but sadly they let that go straight to streaming, I really hope they learn from this and stop just streaming all the really good stuff, which is few and far between anyway, obviously.
Brought some welcome magic back from book
What a gorgeous adaptation. I absolutely adored the book and HATED the American version so it was a welcome sigh of relief to watch so many of the weird and wonderful things Dahl was always able to capture in his stories.
Casting was sublime and the actress who played Miss Honey did it so wonderfully, she broke my heart with her story even though I knew it was coming.
The music was superb and while it is very obviously leaning on the stage show, I really didn’t mind that.
Really didn’t understand why she had no brother in this, it wouldn’t have detracted and it would have been more faithful to the original.
Stephen Graham, that man can act in ANYTHING and he was so good as Mr Wormwood!
All in all, a really beautiful film. My daughter and I loved it and then she made me play the soundtrack all the way home. That says it all.
