Loved it - great cast - not what I expected - maybe that's why I enjoyed it so much.
went through the different time zones seamlessly
A watchable movie with good actors,
Loved it! Went between the two time spectrum's with ease. Fantastic story. Great acting
A surprise from the start. A little scary at the first visit, but quite an enjoyable watch
A very watchable film well acted and entertaining.
Timey-Wimey period drama that's well acted & well presented. Downton Abbey fans will see many similarities here from this earlier piece from Julian Fellows, not the least of which including Maggie Smith, Hugh Bonneville & Allen Leech. I loved the story, being able to slip between time periods & interact with people in both times. Very well written.
Would have preferred another ending........
Another gem from the Brits, they do make period drama exceptionally well. This tale blends two periods together with compelling stories and characters in both.
Very enjoyable viewing. Great cast and good story, something a bit different.
I love a good Time Warp movie - good story and although somewht predictable in the end it is very well done and worth watching.
This got me in right from the beginning. So cleverly scripted and acted. Having Maggie Smith was an added bonus. A must see as far as I'm concerned.
Too far fetched and not believable. Talking to ghosts who are seeing the future? I mean really.... And these ghosts passing objects to this person in the future? Really stupid. An insult to one's intelligence.
Julian Fellow is such an excellent writer (Downton Abbey) and this is a darker story with great actors. The story is shown through the eyes of the boy and set in wartime done in a charming way. It has Maggie Smith in it so is a must see.
a very enjoyable family movie
So enjoyable .Great caste great story.
I really did enjoy the film and with very good actors.
Charming and really well done. I had low expectations of a slightly old-fashioned lo-fi British children's film, and it is, but I was captured by the heart and soul of this one. The story isn't new, and you'll pretty much guess what's coming, but don't let that put you off. If you want to see a well made film tell a warmly familiar story, go for it.
Brilliant. Perfect for all ages.
It's a movie version of the old Green Knowe books by Lucy M. Boston. I'm rather upset that no one told me this was Green Knowe, always loved those books... and this is a beautiful representation of "The Chimneys of Green Knowe", don't miss out.
Interesting premise, really badly executed. With quality cast including Maggie Smith and Pauline Collins, there was really no excuse (can't imagine how their agents managed to talk them into taking this second rate project on). The main problem was the boy playing the lead role - I've seen piano legs less wooden than this kid. Dull as ditchwater.
THIS IS A GHOST MOVIE FOR YOUNG TEENAGERS. Quality actors wasted on a predictable script and very thin story line. No drama just light entertainment.
What a lovely family movie, we really enjoyed it. Great for the younger children and the young at hear.
OK but forgettable. Maggie Smith is, as always, perfect. It felt like a children's movie to me and I can't see any child being frightened by it, but what do I know about kids.
Loved the movie especialy Maggi Smith
Enjoyable, but a bit lacking in the suspense you would expect from a ghost story as it is all accepted so easily. Maggie Smith is somewhat restrained and we know she can do so much more. I watched it on a gloomy wet day and it kept me well distracted so it did it's job.
Enjoyed very much. Something a bit different to watch. Maggie Smith once again played the perfect part.
Well worth a look, very good mystery/period piece.Maggie Smith is wonderful as usual.
Very disappointing with poor acting, except for the inimitable Maggie Smith. Predictable and thin plot line.
I think anything created by Julian Fellowes, famed for "Downton Abbey", is going to be good and I wasn't disappointed. For a start, it is wonderful storytelling. The relationship between Tolly and his granny progresses to a brilliant ending. The story is a mix of many entertaining elements, wonderful characters, a picturesque setting and the mystery of what unfolds. For those who like ghost stories, I can highly recommend it.
A different sort of movie, switching for present to the past and back again. Still I liked it
I really enjoyed this movie, it was full of twists and turns and although I'd call it a "light" movie, there was no wasted space and it left me disappointed at the end because I wanted more more more
Great film. Loved the concept of being able to interact with ghosts and it was well directed and put together. Not overly long and drawn out. Overall all a really enjoyable film.
I really enjoyed this movie. Dame Maggie Smith is a marvelous actress, and the mixing of fantasy with history was well done.
I laughed and I cried and I got goosebumps .... A fantastic film, not to be missed. As it has a PG rating I tried getting my daughter to watch it with me, but she found it a bit creepy, so I'm not sure if it will appeal to children, but a Must See for anyone wanting a break from Hollywood schmaltz.
This is a good film. Very entertaining. Good acting from Maggie Smith and the actor who played the young boy. Even though rated as a child's film, it was equally entertaining for adults.
Good movie, worth the watch very entertaining if you like this period of time
A very clever well done English film. Good acting, good plot and well worth a look.
We really enjoyed this movie. A bit different, but fans of English period movies and Maggie Smith will like it. Tissues required!
Excellent watch - surprisingly enjoyable seeing as I'd never heard of it before. highly recommended.
Light entertainment. Always get movies with Maggie Smith
Unable to watch due to the annoying alternating loudness of the background music.
Very disappointing, thought it would be better in particular with Maggie Smith staring.
I good solid film that is sure to keep the mine captive for the length of the film. Great performance by Maggie Smith.
Interesting story, Maggie is great, well worth getting out.
Delightfully poignant and nostaligic family-friendly story, and very English. You won't scare your grandma if she watches it with you. It's noice, very noice.
Speedy service, great movie.
this title i enjoyed. I thought it was well worth the watch. The concept has been done a few times now, but this is another format of this genre. Well done, keeps you interested throughout. Whole family could sit down to this one (with guidance). You can get a little 'lost' in the story at times but it always seems to 'get back on track'
Beautiful movie well acted, interesting storyline, remimded me of 'Downton Abbey' but that may be Maggie Smith plays the family matriarch in this one too and has several others from the TV series. Does have some supernatural themes so be aware for younger children. A really lovely film showing how strong family ties are through the generations.
An enjoyable, interesting and beautifully shot film adapted by Julian fellows, the writer of Gosford Park and Downton Abbey. It was a surprise to see many of Downton's cast in this 2009 movie. I'm now inspired to read the book.
A bit slow at times but still a lovely movie. Maybe not recommended for young kids though as there are a few scary bits!
Started slow. but got more interesting towards the end.
Pleasant to watch. Good family film.
