Sad to see that some people who have seen this just don't get it at all. But l guess that sorts out the psychopaths because anyone with an ounce of feeling will find this transcendent. Oh for simpler times when music was not commodified and Aretha was in her prime. That woman had something l have never encountered in anything else in all my 63 years on the planet. Everyone in the movie felt it and so did we, over 50 years later across an ocean. There are plenty of other technically gifted singers but mostly they are simply vocal gymnasts by comparison. Extraordinary talent, modest and self contained, never histrionic, never predictable phrasing, sometimes slightly off the beat with an unrivalled vocal vocabulary, always in control so that even at extremes it sounds as if she is holding something back. It's not the filming which makes this a great film but it's subject. We will never see her like again.
Me? I fell asleep half way through. My eight year old friend? He enjoyed it.
Likeable enough film withe usual Loach realism, albeit wedded to a whimsical plot. Unless you're Glaswegian best to keep the subtitles on.
I thought this an ok adaptation. It's not flashy or weighed down by some director's attempt to make it "relevant". If you are studying the play and want a fairly faithful version this is good to go.
I am struggling to understand why people think so highly of this. We found much of it implausible and the dialogue wooden. I accept that melodrama has a logic of its own but this is just wrong on so many levels.
