Audience Reviews for Pennies From Heaven
Bob Hoskins became a star in Britain in 1978 with this interesting miniseries that pointedly juxtaposes real life with life portrayed in media, particularly life in song. Set in the 1930's, the rosy haven of melodic yearnings has no comparison in the real world where money, or the lack of it, calls the tune, except in the hearts and minds who devoutly wish it all were true. The cast is adept at switching instantly from rough and down and dirty to "there's a golden tomorrow for us somewhere", and though the format of miming old pop songs jars at first the presentation is original and daring enough to put doubts away. Interesting bit of Brit culture and history.
