Yepp, great movie. Paul Giamati is great, Mary superb. Oscars are calling, I hope.
From the vintage film company logos, to the soundtrack, the pacing and performances, camera angles, costuming, and set dec; this movie encapsulates Christmas memories. As if flipping through a vintage family photo album or old holiday postcards. There is a familiarity to this film; and it has truly cemented itself as a new holiday classic.
Tragic, endearing, wonderful character development and storyline. Really enjoyed entering their complex and intricate lives! Very funny too!
The acting and storyline.
Never judge a book by its cover. My era, brings back memories.
Charming, heart warming story with smart humor. Paul Giamati is spot on . . . and so is the rest of the cast. It's nice to see we have not forgotten how to make movies. After what won the Oscar last year. And a number of equally bizarre movies that followed on it's path, it's nice to see that charming doesn't get old.
If u were a Teenager in the 60s or 70s, u will relate to this movie. Paul Giamati is AMAZING! This story is based on true events that actually happened to me in the 70s at a private school that was too far from home for me to leave for Xmas break. 3 of us became sad Holdovers!
A lot of the characters’ choices they make are because they think they have to. When they discover they can make their own decisions, it is a delight to see.
Best movie IV seen in a long time.
Great movie, very entertaining
Location scenic journey through heart-wrenching social morees of the 70's Americana , the absolutely perfect characterizations and complications surprising us around every bend in the road . Integrity , humour , wisdom, hearts healing and bonding. Oscar for sure
Heartwarming movie with a touch of humor. Highly recommended and definitely worth your time.
PABLO G...WILL WIN THE OSCAR...ACTING MASTERCLASS.
Not for people who like Marvel Movies or Jump scare horror. Just shows the intelligence in the US is sliding every year
Nothing like it was advertised Not funny at all
Very heartwarming movie. A movie to watch for parents , with their teens or couples who want to start a family. But do we learn from it at all? Whether you're rich or poor, nobody should ever bring a child in this world unless you're ready to be a parent and know the responsibility of being one. Money buys you materials things, or luxuries but you can not buy love or true happiness. Many neglected rich kids are unhappy, in drugs, misbehave looking for parental attention. Many of these parents just shift their child to boarding schools or raise by Nannies.
A front runner for Best Picture.
What a wonderful story. I am done with superhero and horror films. This is a heart warming story of ordinary people. Enjoy! I did.
