This was a really lovely movie – I have always been a bit biased against Helen Mirren, thanks to the first movie I ever saw her in which I am trying very hard to forget, but she was fantastic. So was Julie Walters. I think it’s remarkable that this movie was based on a true story – how impressive! To raise nearly 600,000 pounds in a few years is brilliant. And the movie – marvellous. So much potential to be slushy, and it doesn’t take up any of it. Thankfully.
