I've always been a big Richard E Grant fan from the early days of Withnail to Jack & Sarah fan but have been waiting for a return to form of late. This film finally provides it, and he's delightfully backed up by a talented ensemble cast in a movie which is opera meets Love Actually. It's beautifully shot in a stunning location and the music is majestic. Not all the relationships work but there's more than enough in there to keep even a jaded cynic (more commonly referred to as my husband!) amused and entertained. Mia Maestro and Emma Williams give star turns and are ones to watch. And while I realise why they cast her in a music-related film, Sarah Brightman is about the only dull note, not helped a brief but misguided lesbian subplot. Richard, however, is gloriously back on song in a role which plays to his manic comedic strengths. An old-fashioned romcom for all the best reasons.
