very heartwarming film - Our Little Sister review by DS

Spoiler Alert

Beautiful touching story, the way its told feels like the sisters are a real family, there is an immediate chemistry, and I love how they showed lots of little special every day moments , the diary story telling is very effective.

Sheer delight! - Our Little Sister review by TE

Spoiler Alert

What a wonderful film! Very assured direction and camera work enhance a good story with rounded characters.

It manages to be 'feel good' without the usual sentimental syrup...just a simple joy to watch.

There are shades of dark in the tale, but the sisterly bonds are beautifully conveyed.

It's rare to watch a film and wish that it was a whole box-set, but I wanted to see how their lives progress.

My only concern was how they manage to stay so slim given all the very delicious food that is featured throughout!
