Good grief what a shallow film full of unexamined ideas. Even the nudity can't make this rubbish interesting.
Judi Dench is absolutely brilliant, well supported by the leading man and the lovelies.
A very good movie. Judy Dench always brings something amazing to her films. She did an excellent job a portraying a rich, eccentric widow who breathes new life into the West End theatre scene during... Read more hard times in England. Brilliantly acted and definitely worth a watch.
Judi Dench is superb in this extremly good film of the Windmill Theatre which kept open during the second world war wonderful cast and being based on a true story the background is so realistic with clothes cars of the period
You'd think that with stars like this and a great story like this that you'd get a terrific, feel good movie. But it's a twee, phony dud. It's just too precious and prissy to be remotely believable... Read more, or fun. Something went wrong here, because Stephen Frears usually delivers, but in this case, he doesn't.
Judi Dench - brilliant as always. A light hearted approach to a serious situation
Lovely movie. Light entertainment with good actors.
A great story, beautifully acted by Judy Dench and a well-mixed cast. A poignant tear-jerker that finds the right balance - presenting a nude revue during the war could just be flippant - but it is... Read more not too heavy and yet does not trivialise their involvement in the arts while all hell is going on around them. The age-old theme of "the show must go on" is given serious weight by Dench's acting skill.
Great movie. Humour, compassion, spirit. Something uplifting and gentle about english movies. We liked it, granny liked it and even the teenagers liked it.
Quite a good movie set before and during the 2nd world war in London, very good acting, a good story easy to follow.
I enjoyed it a lot.
