beautifully acted, witty and... a true gift for women who forget what they can do.

Kind of a female "Dead Poet's Society", but with a lot more lies and catty fighting.
I almost wish they focused more on the art in this film, but the "housewife factory" aspect was quite interesting as a replacement.

Great cast, poor screenplay.

This wannabe female Dead Poets Society falls short in many ways.

This is a wonderful movie that inspires and re-tells the classic "don't judge a book by it's cover." Highly recommended!

A climaxless film with climactic materials.

One of my favorites. The dang last scene gets me every time.

Julia roberts carry the weight of this nice story on her beautiful shoulders. whoelse in the cinema has such a recognizable smile? She was born to play this character (probably written for her in the first place). The filmis nicely directed and the reconstitution of the era well done. It's a good film, fair and square.

Great performances by the cast with an actually interesting story about feminism.

An Historically Interesting Look At An Era Of Change For Women. Filmed On The Original Location Depicted In The Narrative, It Was Okay But Just Lost In The Delivery For Me. Bit Boring To Honest, Surprising With Such A Big-Name Cast List.

Julia Roberts must have a magic wand, for she always manage be loved and unsullied, even in an underwritten role. Supported by a big group of A list cast, the movie is a female version of "To sir with love", only with a less obvious agenda. It's a pity that several plots were brushed superficially, making the stew a little diluted.

Inspiring message.
Slow but acceptable pace.

Under-rated film.

Beautiful movie. Empowering story played with conviction by Julia Roberts, with a superb supporting cast. Enlightenment through example and inspiration. Every girl should be so lucky to have a powerful and positive influence.

Diez años después es que la vengo a ver completa, excelente el mensaje... un tanto vigente, quitando lo obvio.

Throughout the movie you can't help but reflect on similarities to Dead Poets' Society which made Mona Lisa Smile less interesting to keep on watching.

A female version of Dead Poets Society and of course not that inspiring.

Boring, I wanted so much more from this movie. The best story line in this movie is between Ginnefer Goodwin and her love interest. Otherwise the rest of the plot is just boring. The acting is good but it was all pointless.
