Endearing and mild coming-of-age tale in 1920s Scotland.

I found myself involved during the screening but the experience had faded a few hours later.

With a fine cast, an inviting and pastoral setting, director Hugh Hudson has created a winning morality play that feels like a leisurely vacation.

A lovely coming of age drama that reveals the bounties of a life filled with wonder.

Not a world shaker, but pleasant enough.

Because it is based on honest material, the film's script also offers some refreshingly honest takes on love.

Should appeal to audiences tired of the summer's flashier fare.

Audience Reviews for My Life so Far

First let me start by saying the "synopsis" attached here on Flixster has NOTHING to do with this film.

This film is an often charming and somewhat painfull look at one young (Scottish) boys coming of age and to the realization that his family (particularly his father) are not untouchable icons (as we tend to think of them when we are children), but are in fact flawed, repressed, real live human beings.

The film is JUST homoginized enough to loose a bit of it's potential, but is still not your average "family film" by any means.

The good solid performance from this impressive cast.
