A really cute and beautiful film, with the stunning Julia Roberts - ach, what can I say, she is a favourite of mine.... so I loved it. 4 stars.
A nice movie with some of my fave actors.
Botox lips and a clichéd script does not a movie make - skip it, its rubbish.
Quite a sweet film. Fairly light going, but had a point to it
I expected something more with Julia Roberts as the lead.
Charming and thought provoking.
Typical Chick flick!!
Wife liked it... which is all that counts with these type of "go nowhere" films..
We really loved this film which was a fabulous study of society in 1953.
Julia [ sigh ] was absolutely brilliant as the " teacher they weren't expecting " due to her very feminist views. Quite revolutionary for the 1950's.
Good chick flick. Loved it.
Not what i expected but enjoyable all the same.
Well written, excellent cast. I just didn't get enough loving toward the end.
Forgot I had seen this one before - so obviously did not make a big impression the first time.
A collage for upper class girls meets a progressive thinking arts teacher in 1960s. Great acting.
Yes, I agree it was very uplifting. Very well acted with many of the best young actresses. Thank heavens women have choices. Very interesting
This movie highlights the debate still relevant today about women staying at home or pursuing a career, with the best scene I found when one of the student's had just eloped and the teacher is still trying to help get her into law school. Good movie.
Thought this Movie fairly Average.We are Julia Roberts Fans but this movie did not do much for us
A bit of a slow start, but the gender inequality issues emerged with more substance as the film progressed.
a very nice movie indeed.
I found this movie very thought provoking and ahead of its time for the time period it set in. TG for feminism and where we are today. Julia made a great teacher and totally believable.
The subject matter is inspiring and on that score it hits the mark. Julia Stiles is her usual iridescent self, Julia Roberts was not so convincing in this role. Something a little cliched about the Hollywood treatment of this story.
A female Dead Poets without the impact. Certainly watchable, but a bit on the light-and-fluffy side.
Not a bad movie but not to my taste
What can I say Julia Roberts is always brilliant. Reminded me of Dead Poets Society.
A very affecting movie - similar to 'Goodbye Mr Chips' and 'Mr Holland's Opus' in its uplifting message that good educators can get through to students. Julia Roberts was excellent.
This movie was borring and had no real story line it was a waste of my time my time watching it.
Was great to see the rapport that ended up being between the teacher and the students. Overall, a good movie.
Nice easy film to watch, with the story line keeping me interested until the end.
Nothing fantastic; but worth watching if you are a Julia Roberts fan or want a girly movie.
Brilliant movie. Well acted and good storyline. Don't miss this one.
It's okay - interesting to see changes in what we expect - however also interesting to see one woman did not want to be pushed into further study but knew what she wanted was family instead!
Dead Poet's society set in the 50's with all female students and less swearing
sets itself up to be a feminist Dead Poet's Society but completely misses the point.
A great girl movie that shows breaking the mould is ok.
Thought Robert's performance was poor and predictable ending made it poorer. The only aspect that kept it going was the performance of Dunst who was a revelation.
A must see movie, Julia Roberts another great performance
It just goes to show how far women have come over time. This movie was well made, had a great cast, and it was refreshing to see something worth watching without violence or swearing in every scene.
for those who love a love story and those who love julia roberts. brilliant
A wonderful insight into the dated thinking of modern day "finishing schools" and the impact of free thinking teachers.
Very good chick flick, husband enjoyed it as well.
This movie turned out to be better than I had expected. It captured the tribulations of women in the post-war era very well. Julia Roberts played the part of the rebel teacher with a "clause" really well! It was funny and touching at the right places - it's one of those movies you warm up to the more you watch it.
Enjoyable if slightly predictable movie. I was expecting a female version of Dead Poets Society, this movie is however much more of a lightweight.
I was pleasantly surprised this one. Beginning was a little slow but I was hooked by the end. Definately worth seeing.
Julia Roberts is excellent in this role. Makes you look at how far women have come over the years.
A very enjoyable movie with, for a change, no language, crime or sex.
Surprisingly good chick flick.
A little peep into the 1950's marriage market. Lots of moving moments with beautiful scenery. The Julia's are stunning.
Very enjoyable and thought provoking
A bit slow to start with, then starts to get interesting. Great period costumes.
Not an intellectually stimulating movie; sit back and relax.
Pleasant enough Roberts vehilce but cheesey ending
Not a fast moving or a little bit of fun movie that I associate Julia Roberts with, but it was entertaining and she does bring some warmth and spirit to her character as an art teacher of basically spoilt & elite teenage girls.
Julia Roberts is one of my favourite stars and once again does a great job with her character
I enjoy anything with Julia Roberts, she makes you feel part of the story.
Not much of a stunner. I wouldn't really bother if I were you.
Great feminist movie- great old time 50's songs.
Well acted and holds interest.
Very enjoyable movie. Julia Roberts excellent as usual.
As always Julia Roberts' movies are of a high quality.
I thought the ending was a little disappointing, would have liked a stronger and more positive ending.
Rather dreary and pointless melodrama with story and acting to match
the bakelite sets. Goodbye Mrs Chips.
Great movie with good meaning.
Female version of Dead Poets Society but don't let that stop you - excellent!
A bit of a chick flick but a good one.
Great 'chic' flick for DVD/Video.
Very pleasant family movie
More like a three and a half. Good chick flick.
Very intriguing, inspiring and uplifting. Not to be missed for any aspiring successful or astute women.
Good to see that women have moved on.
My girlfriend picked this, it certainly is a chick flick
Good movie - definitely worth getting
Not a bad film but nothing outstanding. Julia Roberts is a cast in a role which we have become used to seeing so nothing new there. All in all a nice film to fill in a couple of hours.
