Youth #Gottit View:
If this film didn’t have the songs (Which are well written and brilliantly performed, for the record) in the movie – this would probably be the best remake in years. The cast are outstanding, the film is really well made and it’s a brilliant story that all generation should know. But we found it very uncomfortable regularly, when you find yourself tapping your foot to songs that often have a ‘jolly’ tone about domestic abuse towards woman. Sadly the songs didn’t work for us, in such an impactful and important story – but everything else was brilliant!!!
