Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Well received by audience

A good film enjoyed by the audience

Quite a mix of pathos and humour (and bad language!) in this retelling of a true-life romance between an unknown, and a Hollywood star. A real spark is evident between the two leads giving great warmth, and ultimate sadness to the film. Mix of reactions from Average to Excellent
