Chic So good Romantic in a mara??? Sort of way (Someone else may be able to decipher this) Too clever Saw it twice now. There may well be a third time! Lovely music, interesting film, great cinematography. Amazing house and clothes. Lead actress reminded me of young Meryl Streep. As impressive second time around. A strong willed person does need a strong willed person as a partner! Beautiful Excellent Fabulous acting. Wonderful film. That’s quite a way to keep your man in check! Compelling. “Mushrooms on crispy toast for breakfast, darling?” Great acting, great scenes and some dodgy foraging. Perfect start of the season. Wonderful and mesmerising acting. Sweet Subtly funny. Wonderful performances. Tremendous acting and great direction. Fascinating and moody Rather dark but funny in places. Thought it was an interesting story, ending a bit contrived. Compelling, but it’s put me off mushroom omelettes. Background music irritating. Could have thought of some more exciting plot lines. Couple of nice dresses, but did stay awake! Too lush and too long Pretentious twaddle! (and the sound quality was poor throughout)
