Little White Lies

Unfortunately the film doesn't quite get to grips with it on anything other than a superficial level, seemingly too charmed by the polite, respectful lead character to get down and dirty with any bigger issues, so punches are pulled in the drama.

Guardian

The re-creation of the 1960s backdrop on a tight budget sadly never allows the director to unleash the epic sweep this against-the-odds yarn really requires.

Radio Times

KO -ed by a flabby screenplay and lacking the money to do justice to the '60s setting, director Neil Jones falls back on clever tricks - like using an HD Glove Cam - but fails to punch above his weight.

Total Film

Stodgy fare that eulogises the man rather than delving deeply into his compelling life.
