I found this movie to be rather enjoyable in a quiet serene way. Directed by Alan Rickman, this stars Emma Thompson and her mother Phyllida Law. They have a wonderfully frustrating chemistry. Law is charming, and annoying as only a very caring mother can be.
The best part of the movie are the two boys Sam and Tom. Sam is played by Douglas Murphy and Tom is played my Sean Biggerstaff (who is Oliver Wood in the Harry Potter films). They have the funniest teenage boy dialogue.
