Very lovely story to begin with but then takes a very strange turn at the end (which i loved). It's the kind of film i could watch twice in a row

Well acted on the most part and a believable plot just the twist at the end was a bit much.

I did enjoy this movie, but the book is miles better.

The oddness of the characters and story are lost on film. And I half expected the editing to have saturated the colour towards the end, to show the climax of the long, hot summer, which turns out is barely noticeable in the movie.

Some people will feel cheated by the ending, as it seems totally isolated from the rest of the movie, and isn't really concluded at all.

I'd definately recomend the book rather than the movie, it gets under the characters skin far better, and while it still has a rather disjointed ending, overall it maintains the relationship between the girls much better.

The movie is pretty strange on the whole with a nonsensical ending that leaves you wondering what the point was. I'm not sure if i missed anything but I thought they could have built more on the last 5 minutes or so.

I've still given the movie 3 stars because it made me laugh on occasion and is well filmed in (what im assuming to be) beautiful Yorkshire.

I won't say avoid it like the plague but don't expect too much.

My first thought (as someone else says) was of: "Heavenly Creatures"....there is a definite similarity here with the slightly insane/fantasist thoughts of tamsin Vs the overawed-naivety of 'Mona' However, i rented this movie because of Paddy Considine.....ive only discovered this fella quite recently & he stuns me every time! A model of repressed anger/violence that instills an uncomfortable feeling of 'Any second now'-ness to his performance.
I loved this movie....the whole concept of finding love & believing entirely and then being so let down / betrayed by those who drew you in or you believed in - Mona by Tamsin, Phil by god.
Gritty & tense but also romantic & passionate.....a great movie, so what if the story is a little derivative? ....and the ending? What's confusing about it? - a discovery of 'truth' & choosing to walk our own path is how i saw it.
Anyway, a variation on the likes of Shane Meadows' gritty-england output that takes a slightly different view.
A very enjoyable 74minutes.

More than just a lesbian love story. It's an engaging film, with engaging characters. Emily Blunt steals the show here, I think, with a subtle and extremely seductive performance which makes the relationship so much more believable.

The story isn't predictable, and isn't melodramatic, which is a relief. However, the story slumps towards the last act... and, for me, was climactically unsatisfying.

Give it a go, you'll probably enjoy it.

OK, I guess this is the Directors unique arty style, didn't work for me though, nearly found myself turning it off. Quite liked the twist at the end, that was about it, probably the best bit actually. Had a very random script and was very slow and draining. Acting was good though, especially from Emily Blunt and the guy who played Mona's Brother.

Weird northern comedy/drama, with some boobs. Reviews told me it was amazing and I should buy it, and it was ok, but I've seen a lot better. 4 stars because boobs, otherwise 2 stars.

One of Emily Blunt's first films. Strong performances in a rather dreamy Yorkshire setting. A rite of passage story that still works even though a bit dated. I enjoyed it.
