Critic Reviews for Sixty Six
Cleaves too closely to the pattern set out by more original films with similar subject matter. Its obvious distinctions of time and place come through in clever details, but these don't seem to serve Weiland's autobiography so much as situate it into a fa
Since Mr. Weiland himself had grown up in a Jewish section of North London, he was able to include many details of his own childhood.
It's labeled a 'true-ish story', and the results are cheeky fun.
Sixty Six is also about accepting parents with all their frailties, coming to terms with the unfairness of life, and finding a way to switch the focus to the wonders we do have to celebrate.
The story line sounds plain and simple, but the movie is enlightened by Bernie's impassioned narration and by a gallery of small comic details.
Audience Reviews for Sixty Six
A quirky, yet poignant, British comedy drama that shows sensitivity towards both Jewish and English cultures alike. "Sixty Six", named for the year the story was set, has a lot of moral values to teach us.
Absolutely charming, funny, heartwarming, and delightful film!! Truly splendid. By the last scene, I was teary eyed and grinning from ear to ear. Kudos!!
Sweet if minor coming of age comedy drama with a winning performance from Gregg Sulkin as Bernie the young boy who has almost everything that can go wrong leading up to his Bar Mitzvah go wrong. Helena Bonham Carter and Eddie Marsan are effective as his parents. Drags a little but the ending makes up it.
