Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Aboud ... works some obvious parallels as he tells the story of a timid young woman, her cranky old neighbor and the garden that separates them, but enjoyable performances keep the tale from becoming too heavy-handed.
Rotten: There are no puppies, kittens or baby bunnies in This Beautiful Fantastic. That said, however, any restraint before the altar of adorableness is abandoned in writer-director Simon Aboud's sophomore feature.
Fresh: None of what transpires is earth-shattering, but it's the way it happens, with the simplicity and sense of wonder of an old-fashioned picture book, that makes her story, however wispy, delightful.
Fresh: A charming, beautifully photographed modern fairy tale about love and gardening, This Beautiful Fantastic is worth seeing in spite of its dumb deterrent of a title.

Wonderful quirky adorable film
I love this film. It's so fun and light. It's the type of movie that was made 10 years ago: a crowd-pleaser with a phenomenal cast and great story. Highly recommend for all!
This movie brought me peace and serenity exactly at the moment I needed... thank you!
