This making-of-a-star drama is old-fashioned and corny, and not in a good way.

Sep 10, 2018 | Full Review…

What's so brave and exciting about Max Minghella's directorial debut is that it refuses to compromise on either end, a sweet pop spectacle at once both proudly generic and unafraid to be itself.

Knows how to add gloss without losing emotion.

A movie that's formulaic in every detail but that passes off its particular cute brand of British Isles whimsy as a vaguely high-toned signifier of "authenticity."

Sep 9, 2018 | Full Review…

The film is derivative, calibrated to appeal to a lowest-common-denominator audience ... and yet admittedly catchy.

Jan 23, 2019 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

Notwithstanding this less than original narrative, Minghella's keen eye for detail enriches the film with a warm familiarity.
