Touching old school movie with three terrific performances. Anne Bancroft and Hopkins are just great in this. Nobody does suppressed emotion like Anthony Hopkins. And Judy Dench is terrific in a small... Read more but important supporting role. If you're hoping for action this will bore you to tears, but if you love literature, and a feel good semi-romance you'll like this quietly moving film.
A wonderful "classic" movie that's stood the test of time. Similar plot to "You've got mail" without the modern take on romance.
A real old fashioned and genteel love story,will they ever get together and if they do would it work? Really enjoyable for my older age group.
I really enjoyed this movie. It is not too deep or serious, perfect for relaxing
Quaint and charming though a little laboured at times. One to watch on a rainy afternoon.
A pleasant gentle story, somewhat slow towards the end. Anthony Hopkins' supreme talents are not given enough scope by the script and character development for the minor characters could do with some attention.
Fantastic film - but then, anything with Anne Bancroft is worth watching. She and Anthony Hopkins gave the story line a real depth and pathos.
This would be the real classic of movies for me, to see Judi Dench in her younger days and once again to see Anthony Hopkins who never ceases to enthral me with his genuine and sincere character.
A most unusual story; based on a book, and very well adapted. The film is not only well concieved but also very well produced. Hopkins is his usual best, while Judi Dench plays a minor part when she... Read more was much younger than one usually sees her. A refreshing tale devoid of foul language, innuendo, sex and the like. It draws a vivid contrast between English and American cultures.
Excellent movie. Anne Bancroft and Anthony Hopkins play the epitomy of 1950s American and English roles respectively equisitely.
