Hunky Dory Reviews

Hunky Dory flits along blithely from number to transporting musical number until it ends - with a sigh - and dodges any authentic engagement with its own ideas.

Everything will not be quite so Hunky Dory at the box office has it blends into the background of serviceable low-budget Brit flicks.

It's pleasant, forgettably feelgood and unabashedly hackneyed, doing everything you expect it to - nothing more, nothing less.

Too gentle to have any impact, as uncertain of what it will ultimately be as its young subjects are of themselves.

This will appeal to Glee fans, everybody else may do well to give it a miss.

Despite the good dialogue the script is lacking depth.

Dory has a spark that never catches fire, leaving the bulk of its personality up to Driver and her interesting take on the often strange moods of this coming-of-age musical drama.

Minnie Driver as sweary/smokey inspirational teacher aside, not one destined for the annals of cinema.

A period piece spin on Glee, as filtered through the gauzy lens of underclass-artistic-exuberance that's plagued a subset of comedic-leaning British imports ever since Billy Elliot.

The golden-hued cinematography (a filming cliché that really needs to be retired) and the sometimes slack direction by Marc Evans are minuses ...

More wetly innocuous than it is actively engaging, it's one to be filed under "poignant failure".

Golden-hued, feel-good treacle, the sort that the U.K. has tried to export ever since Billy Elliot.

When it's indulging in glammed-up musical sequences, Hunky Dory comes to life; everything else couldn't seem less inspiring.

There's lo-fi charm in the musical numbers and heartfelt turns from the young cast but the story drifts along without offering much that we haven't seen before.

Writer Laurence Coriat fails to come up with any fresh ideas for developing characters or storylines, and the film never has enough sense of pace or direction.

Like a retro version of High School Musical with less charm.

Hunky Dory has some pleasant things in it, but unfortunately, the funereal pace makes a snail look like a jackrabbit.

Director Marc Evans and screenwriter Laurence Coriat fumble both the musical side of their movie and the coming-of-age side.

A fluffy film about nothing, Minnie Driver and some talented kids keep the cheerful, sunny affair afloat but much like a lazy summer, it's quickly forgotten once it's over.

It's all very lovely and very sad. Cynics need not apply. Aging softies will almost certainly yield to Evans's warm sensibilities.
