  • No list of the year's best performances should be made without her (Sally Hawkins). show more

  • I thought "Topsy-Turvy" was perfection, a spirited evocation of the partnership of Gilbert and Sullivan, plus a blithely definitive depiction of the artistic process. Happy-Go-Lucky is perfection too, assuming you go along with its leisurely pace, which I did quite happily. show more

  • Stays with you like great movies tend to do. It asks you to examine the inner mechanisms of human beings, cheerful and miserable alike. It's not about looking at a glass half empty or a glass half full. It's about drinking down what's in that glass and letting it fill your soul. show more

    I wanted to see this movie because I loved the trailer so I got the movie & was disapointing. I thought the charecter Poppy was annoying & sometimes when she talks I did not understand her. the acting was really bad, & the movie did not go anywhere It was okay for me.

    This movie was totally irritating, as was the lead actress and her driving teacher. I tried to stay and enjoy it, but could not. I ended up walking out. I know everyone else is raving about it, but I guess I didn't get it. I would not recommend spending your hard earned bucks on this one.
