I remember seeing the preview for this movie this past winter, and thinking it looked interesting. But what I saw was nothing like what I'd expected. Francis and Amy did an incredible job of pulling my interest throughout the story, and the setting was one that I find quite fascinating--England in the late thirties.

This was such a sweet film. I loved that it was a Period piece and a Romantic comedy all rolled into one satisfying package of fun and charming cinema. Watch it if you haven't already, because you won't be disappointed

"A fun adventure comedy essentially set in one place. McDormand and Adams play off each other well. The music and singing and ending all make it a nice piece of good old-fashioned entertainment."

“For some people this move will be boring or just maybe to long. But I love it. I just adore that age music, clothing, people manners. This is like a fairytale staring - Miss Pettingrew. Nice Cinderella story.” read more

A charming movie

“I thought it was pretty good. I really like Frances McDormand and she was very good as usual and Amy Adams was just perfect for the role. It was a beautiful movie aswell(decors, costums, mood, directing,...). It is nothing great but it is enjoyable movie and it is definitely worth a look.” read more
