Your standard angry girl with issues. Meets good girl with less issues. But both are very intelligent and at the beginning of their lives. angry mum with issues sad dad with issues nothing much happens not really any problems dump a few boys have an affair.

Nothing gets resolved one girl goes off to uni one gets on her bike credits. Both girls very pleasing to look at both good actresses. A training wheels movie for new actresses.
Can't say it was a waste of a movie not at all. It was worth the £4 and the time I spent watching it ...... Meah......

Great British Film, probably the best of 2011. A strong story with funny, yet sad characters. Excellent script and strong acting make this a must see film.

* contains spoilers *

It could have been quite nice. Gorgeous landscapes, a pleasant, even if clichéd first act setup, and some able performers. But then this movie just looses its grip on everything from the second act onwards.

The focus nervously shifts from one pair of characters to the next and from one storyline to the other. It's all here. The once successful writer, the bitter ex-actress gone mother, the coming-of-age teenage daughter and the motherless girl looking for a home. We endure construed bonding and breaking-up scenes, intermittent unfunny and unfitting comical elements, over-the-top feel-good music, unnecessary plotlines in new locations, drama, tragedy. And finally, the unconvincing unhappy happy ending that leaves us wondering who the protagonist was and what actually just happened.

It is too much of everything, too many people, too many locations, too many problems. It could have been about some people tied down, unable and perhaps learning to fly, viewed from several angles, with characters evolving, some getting what they want and maybe what they need.

Instead, it's one big unsatisfying muddle. It is a shame that this kind of script can portray itself as independent material and thus escape the scrutiny of a good story editor. But then, again, this movie might never have been made in the first place.

I bought this because I like Felicity Jones.
The cast was great and whilst the father and the "cleaner" were having an affair, her life was hard and the way they get on or not, is all the way people 's life changes.
I really enjoyed it but it was sad at times.
