OK maybe it is a bit trite.... but it's still a belting film!

...made so by both lead actors putting in an excellent performance. Apart from the odd twist the plot is predictable but it's no less enjoyable for that. To the critics who say it deals with 60's racism in the States in a glossy superficial way. Ok. Fair enough. But what we always seem to forget is that first and foremost a film is meant to entertain. A film that doesn't do that, on at least some level, is never going to get anywhere. And then you'd never even get the debate...

Please don’t be put off by some of the inaccurate and bigoted reviews posted here.
This is a superb movie and well worth all the awards and oscars it has been given.
Set in 1962 it depicts a sad period in America’s treatment of racism in the Southern States.
The acting by both the lead actors is superb, but many or the smaller parts are very good too.
Great atmosphere where the old cars, concert halls and landscapes feature strongly, but it is the relationship between the driver and the concert pianist that makes this such a memorable film.
One of the best movies I have seen in this or any year.
