I enjoyed this one. Good acting, likeable characters, and a simple, rather gentle, feel-good movie.
Movie was ok.A nice story behind it but not one i'd watch again.
Wonderfull acting by all. A sensitive satory well told.
A wee gem of a movie. Great story
Wow!! I was not expecting that ending. A really good movie.
beautiful story, shows how far the love of a mother will go for her deaf son, the story itself kept us interested enough to sit tg=hrough, and there was quite a unexpected twist iat the endt
Very moving. Very well directed and acted. One of my absolute favourite films.
Gerard Butler was hot hot hot...but this was a depressing, dreary, dull little movie.
Fantastic movie, touching story about a little boy who wishes to meet his father. Maybe I was just feeling emotional but haven't cried so much for ages. Or maybe I just can associate with the power of a mother's love.
Absolutely gorgeous. I loved every minute of this film - the story, the characters, the scenery, the lot! Really worth watching.
A classic story, warm and real. The Scottish accent was sometimes a challenge for this American.
Quite a different story, enjoyable.
Heartwarming and compelling. A simple story that tugs on the heartstrings.
Although this movie took a while to move along,Ifound it to be a very moving story.Emily Mortimer as Lizzie shows a lot of compassion as the boy's Mother and Gerard Butler was perfect as the Stranger.Well worth a look,it keeps you interested until the end.
The lies we tell because we wish they were true. Well worth seeing.
A sad story mixed with hope. Well worth seeing.
Thoroughly enjoyable scottish film, great cast (gerald butler is a hunk!), with just the right mixture of humor and sadness. Wonderful haunting music accompanies an intriguing scottish background. One to watch on a cold, bleak day!
What a wonderful film!! This lovely story set against a dreary Glaswegian backdrop made you laugh, cry and everything in between. The characters were marvellous, especially Frankie, the 9 year old deaf boy who yearns to meet his father. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who likes a decent well acted film that doesn't rely on special effects and big name movie stars.
It's not often we get to see the story of "real people" in movies. This is a heart-wrenching story beautifully acted and set in the gloomy desperate city of Glasgow. The pure desperation and struggle of the mother to keep up a pretense to her deaf son that his father is still around is provoking. I was disappointed in the ending though - it did not tie in completely for me.
Very moving & heartwarming.
