Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

The film left some people confused but on the whole it was well received. A number of regulars didn't attend.

I found the film deserving of all its accolades, with the songs, dancing, and acting being superb. The cinematography was stunning, especially the dance scene overlooking the nighttime city.

Mixed reactions, some thought amazing, others that it did not warrant all the hype! But wonderful escapism.
