I went to see this film with my dad. Other than looking forward to seeing Streep and Hanks on the ol' big screen again, I had no awareness of the movie's context. Bad, isn't it. For someone who did a History degree. And I would wholeheartedly recommend it. It's interesting, on-the-edge-of-your-seat stuff.
I wouldn't have signed up to this film, if my boyfriend hadn't booked me a ticket already. Despite being a History geek, I wasn't that sold. And I can't really tell you why. I think I've just had enough of films about Winston Churchill. But the acting is meant to be superb so I'm looking forward to it.
Ohhhh my. Oh my. Oh my. You've got to see this. But don't. If you don't like singing and dancing, you'll hate it. If you love singing and dancing, or even if you're on the fence, you'll love it. I came out of the cinema feeling all happy and like miracles could happen. Sometimes it's a good kick up the butt.
