Though on paper the movie sounds like a slick relationship comedy, it plays much more realistically.
Most effective when the deceits perpetrated not just by Sam but by several others begin to take their wretched toll, and a real sense of pain intrudes.
Sparkle it doesn't, but it's well performed.
Strongly natural performances and a likeable cast, plus a subtle examination of more serious themes, make it well worth seeing.
A little more cinematic flair might have made Sparkle live up to its title better.
The Graduate comes to London in this thoughtful Britcom.
Low-budget with a subtle script and real, rounded characters.
Inertly plotted, haltingly paced, further embarrassed by Bob Hoskins in shyly lovesick mode, this broken-backed mess is fitfully illuminated by Anthony Head in a camp turn and the American Stockard Channing, her style as immaculate as her English accent.
Funny, likable and watchable, with some nice performances, particularly from Bob Hoskins as a lovelorn older man.
The plot of Sparkle fails to shine.
A bittersweet joy.
Shades of The Graduate colour this small but charming Brit-flick with the Mrs Robinson role taken by Stockard Channing.
A stellar supporting cast try to lift this above the mundane but the hackneyed script shackles it to dullsville.
