    Only occasionally does the film fall into the trap of making the prisoners cute, but it never falters in important ways. show more

    Clumsier hands could have planted this load of pungent sap and come up with sticky fingers. But the creators of this based-on-truth fable carefully cultivate the material so it comes off fresher than it sounds. show more

    Between Owen's quiet intensity and Mirren's showy color, they make a complementary pair for screen or garden. show more

    I liked this movie. (Just viewed it for the first time) It's referred to as a comedy but I must say it touched by heart. It about redemption... a rebirth of the human spirit. Highly recommended. 5 star

    Just caught this movie on Starz and really enjoyed it. Uplifting and feel good but not sappy. Really great characters and the message I like the most - hope.
