Clive Owen, Helen Mirren, Danny Dyer, Warren Clarke ? sounds like a pretty good line up of Actors, yet this story is so ridiculous, it has to be true!! Having only caught the film just a little way in, there was hope that this could turn into a pretty good film, unfortunately that wasn't the case and I have to say, I can't believe that such a cast would have associated themselves with such a silly film, this should have been a one off TV Drama.

A delightful, warm-hearted and wonderful movie. A great and magnificent surprise. A fun, riveting and extroadinary film. Has it's serious moments mixed in with some feel-good humor. Clive Owen is excellent. David Kelly is brilliant.

This was a nice prison gardening film with interesting characters. It has funny moments. The garden show was a bit harsh punishment for these men to be doing time for.

Danny Dyer is the king! This movie was very funny and very quirky. It was a little hard to wrap my mind around the concept of floral gardening being 'the great equalizer', being that I'm more of a vegetable girl, but I found this outing very amusing. The inmates were all such great characters.

This is a heart-warming, inspirational film about prisoners who become masters of gardening. Based on a true story, which is even better. It's nice to see a different prison film. Although it's not as funny as it could be, it has managed to entertain.

As a real fan of British humor, I am always surprised at how I'm not so much enthused by British drama. The characters are very one dimensional and the frame work of a highly predictable class struggle. Although it has some touching moments overall it's as enjoyable as watching early socialist films. Although he tries you never really feel the transformation that Owens makes from being an institutional mind to growing into his role as a gardener. I'm a big Helen Mirren fan and I was hoping for more than the bit supporting role. If you enjoy British drama this maybe for you, but not for me.

A warm and charming comedy. It's nice to see Clive in a less serious performance. You'll feel good after you see this film or at least I did.

A good story with a brilliant cast. It is not often that you come across such a light-hearted prison movie to enjoy.

cool movie, but it's stupid how he commits crime too go back into jail
after he just got released.
it's kinda sad when the old man dies and he spreads his ashes around the garden

I wasn't expecting much and this surprised me. It's one of those charming, feel-good movies that's good for a laugh or two.

You gotta love Clive Owen! I keep finding more films of his, and enjoy most of them! This is also a great story, and very British!

Based on a true story, convicts in Her Majesty's Prison begrudgingly learn the trade of gardening. What a charming English movie!

its like y did u make such a bad movie? i wanted my siter 2 b able 2 watch it but they couldnt cuz it was so much sex. bu tit was good. i thought the gardener was goo

Mostly intriguing because there's a character who gets to give Clive Owen the first sex he's had in fourteen years. A mind-boggling concept...

Pleasant story and Clive Owen and Helen Mirren are always worth a watch. David Kelly is his usual great self. Enjoyable.
