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.
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.
