    It is a lovely film for the holiday season, as well as afterward, and is reminiscent of "Finding Neverland," without the darker undercurrents. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    This attractive, superficial stab at biography, with Renée Zellweger in the title role, is more concerned with a lonely woman's quest for acceptance and love than with an author's worldly achievements. show more

    I love this movie. It is my favorite Renee Zellweger film and I enjoy most all of her movies. This one grabs you by the heartstrings and pulls you in.

    I loved this movie. Romantic and beautiful scenery. A breath of fresh air compared to what is more popular today.

    I have seen this movie at least a dozen times. It is extremely enchanting and a welcomed movie for our time.
