Heartbreaking and a little dark, but a good film! - To Olivia review by giantrolo

Spoiler Alert
04/08/2021

What a cool topic for a film! It was so intriguing to peek into the life of Roald Dahl. Even though a lot of the film was very dark, as a family tries to navigate their way through the death of a beloved child, there was a lovely, positive reconciliation. The film was set against the backdrop of Roald writing his books throughout, and the peach scene was awesome! Good old Augustus. A good film, and definitely recommended!

I'm sorry but 'boring but true' - To Olivia review by DH

Spoiler Alert
09/11/2021

This is a really dull film. It appears that all films made in 2020 should just be thrown in the bin. I've not seen a decent one yet. Perhaps rules just made it too difficult.

If this was how Roald Dahl really was he wasn't a very likeable man.

We were absolutely bored to tears by this and felt that the 90 min running time was 30 minutes too long.

Insightful - To Olivia review by MP

Spoiler Alert
06/04/2022

Although emotionally dark at times, it was a very interesting look at the real life of Roald Dahl and Patricia Neal, and how their lives changed after the death of their daughter Olivia.

Thankfully they came through.

Well worth watching if you like real life stories.
