Moving story about life at rock bottom for the destitute. Sidibe and Mo'Nique do a good job in showing what it's like when life deals you a terrible hand, and the effort it takes to try and break away. Hits you in the gut.
This basically nothing more than The Wrestler with country music instead of wrestling. Only The Wrestler had a much better script. The story is unoriginal and tedious. The only good thing about the movie is its leading actor: no one can play a downtrodden country...
Historically interesting costume drama, that could have been better had the script given more attention to the motivation and motives of the characters. Blunt and Friend are brilliant.
Very funny, very British movie that brings back memories of the good old days of pirate radio. The script is chaotic and messy, but also engaging and humorous.
Enjoyable performance by Malkovich, who portrays a has-been magician. Pretty forgettable movie though.
