Feelgood doesn't have to be bad, we all need escapism - now more than ever - and this film has many strengths - excellent acting, laugh out loud humour and warmth. What I feel it lacks is the authenticity of films it's been likened to - Tell No One; The Lives of Others; Calvary; Amour. The Hollywood touch sanitises the reality of both main characters lives - to the extent that one had to suspend disbelief and any hope of poverty and disability themes being addressed realistically and just allow the fairytale to take place.
