"The small one is the brains, the big guy is the muscle - together they are The Mighty - in this gorgeous little-guys-stand-up-to-the-bullies film. Full of heart and top actors giving touching cameos."
"All too often written off by critics as just eye-candy, Sharon Stone is superb in this woman-must-protect-a-vulnerable-child gangster film. Violent in places, but with ballsy characters you root for."
"Steve Martin is a gold-coin-collecting-miser and loner. A girl by a local junkie mum turns up at his home in the snow. Gabriel Byrne, local politician and money, wants his daughter back. Legal ensues."
"Frida Kahlo's crazy/tragic/heroic life is superbly portrayed by Salma Hayek. And Alfred Molina is brilliant as her politically active but sexually wandering husband. Great movie about a unique artist."
"Bryatt's novel is beloved and four-strong leads do it justice. Eckhart and Paltrow are a pretty but hung-up modern day couple while Ehle and Northam are old Victorian poetic romance. Sloppy but nice!"
