What? - Allelujah review by Ellers

Spoiler Alert
27/06/2023

I was really enjoying this.

This seemed to be in the same genre of Best Marigold Hotel. Then what happened.

I would not recommend this film. Such a shame.

If you want to see a Richard Eyre film watch the children Act (2017).

Uneven 'comedy' that leaves you bemused - Allelujah review by CB

Spoiler Alert
01/09/2023

"a warm, humourous, and deeply moving story" - I'm really not sure that's an accurate description. If I'd read the film's reviews online I might have been prepared for this bemusing (rather than amusing) film that leaves an 'Eh??!' at the end of it. The incredible acting talent represented by the cast is sadly underused. This is like no care home that I have ever been into (and I've been into a few). And the one character who seems more realistic (the head nurse) - well? what can you say? It fails to deliver on many levels. The Evening Standard's summary feels spot on: "a loving but unrealistic and ill-judged portrait of an NHS in crisis". Disappointing.

Disappointing - Allelujah review by JW

Spoiler Alert
18/09/2023

Chose this film largely based on cast. It was disappointing and it was sad to see such eminent actors perform to such a weak script. I appreciate there was a point but it was late in establishing and also unfair to the ordinary excellent staff that deal with the elderly.

I've given it 3 stars because of the cast but frankly it's a film that should never have been made.
