There is kind and winning quality to it but it almost seemed... too small for the big screen. I couldn't shake the feeling throughout that had I seen it streaming on Netflix I would probably have far warmer feelings for it.
Despite this crying out to be described in jigsaw puns, I'll simply say that Kelly Macdonald as the blossoming Agnes blows everyone out of the water in a performance of subtle intensity and humour, and leave it at that.
What a little jewel of a film this is. Sumptuous looking... excellently acted and scripted, light on its feet but filled with a sense of purpose, and, at its core, a sharply observed character study. Hard to fault.
