Just lovely. Glad I saw it
19 February 2019 | by julianrosser-440-787839See all my reviews

A simple story beautifully told and well acted. The star is the little girl - watch out for her as a budding actress. Her acting brings tears to the eyes at times.

Filming locations are lovely and interiors are carefully chosen. Really enjoyed this one and thoroughly recommend it for when you're in a more pensive mood.
