English - like what it should be spoke... - Kind Hearts and Coronets review by JK

Spoiler Alert
11/06/2019

This film is a true classic. What an absolute joy to be able to hear every word the actors say with such clarity. It was music to the ears as opposed to today's mumblings in Dolby Stereo where you need subtitles to understand the gist of what is being said even in what is supposed to be your own language.

The script is as sharp and sparkling today as it was in the 40's/50's when Ealing Comedies were at their peak.

Were Dennis Price and Joan Greenwood really that thin though?

A wonderful slightly black comedy which left you feeling you shouldn’t be laughing but were . Great character portrayals with a perfect level of exaggeration. The final moments were perfect.

Classic Ealing Studios. - Kind Hearts and Coronets review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
02/04/2007

A good film that shows the best of what was Ealing Studios. In a way, after seeing the film, made me miss what we had all those years ago. The magical script, even though a bit cringe worthy in some places, really adds to the clever story line.

If not a fan of 'classic british' films - then maybe not a good one to start off with - but if you have never seen many Alec Guinness films apart from Star Wars or lady killers.. then watch this. Really does show what a talented actor he was.
