Apparently its a true story, with the real life grandaughter playing the same role in the film. I thought it was a great film, poignant and heartbreaking at times, but also interspersed with some very amusing moments, ace of spades comes to mind lol. Great performance by Terence Stamp, who deserved an oscar nomination, not sure if the film made the deadline for this years awards.

Just seen it and really enjoyed it. Shed a few tears just before the end.

Terence Stamp is marvellous and Vanessa Redgrave played her part very convincingly.

It's like the British Film Megamix - bit of Full Monty, bit of Brassed Off etc etc.

Nothing original or special, quite dull and flat.

Well considering it was about a dying woman .... what did you expect ...... ?

I thought it was sensitive, funny in places, poignant and moving.

I expected it to be sensitive, funny in places, poignant and moving.

It wasn't any of those things.

I did find the characters quite annoying, especially the choir mistress.

Why is it so hilarious for pensioners to sing sexy songs? I find it a bit patronising.

Lead actors excellent, others poor.

Story predictable. Why should we all be delighted that Arthur joined the choir? Why is it so hard to understand that some people aren't joiners, and are happier on their own than with a bunch of dimwits?

Not my thing, really. I shouldn't have gone to see it, but like Arthur I was sort of emotionally blackmailed into it by some well meaning friends.
