About the Film
Bella Brown is a beautifully quirky young woman who dreams of writing and illustrating a successful children's book. Despite her abandonment as a child, the all consuming OCD, her unfulfilled dreams, her awful boss at the library and her paralysing fear of flora and fauna, Bella is down but not out. She has a spark, an edge, a talent and a voice that we can feel from the get go. This girl has an unearthly survival instinct, having been found in the middle of winter in the middle of Hyde Park as a baby. When Bella is forced by her landlord to deal with her neglected garden or face eviction, she meets her nemesis, match and mentor in Alfie Stephenson, a cantankerous, loveless, rich old man who lives next door and is an amazing horticulturalist and here the most unlikely of friendships begins. A friendship grows between the reclusive, agoraphobic young woman and the curmudgeonly old widower, set against the backdrop of a beautiful garden in the heart of London where everything seems possible. Containing an all-star cast, featuring Jessica Brown Findlay (Downton Abbey, Harlots), Jeremy Irvine (The Railway Man, War Horse), Andrew Scott (Sherlock, Spectre, Pride), Anna Chancellor (Four Weddings and a Funeral, The Happy Prince) and Tom Wilkinson (Batman Begins, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel).
Entertaining, funny, quirky and enjoyable story line well worth watching.
Beautiful and fantastic!
So inspiring, moving and colourful! Top notch acting too! Completely won me over!
Gentle and dreamlike - a bit like Amelie
With qualities people enjoyed in Amelie, but truly British - with eccentrics and self-deprecating humour - this is a delightful fairytale story filmed beautifully. Excellent character development, with a slow but even pace that credits actors and directors. I liked this, and it will bear many viewings.
