    Forbes has a delicate but unsentimental approach, which gives her film the same infectious energy that blesses and curses Cameron. The end result feels good without feeling superficial.

    This is an impressively clear-eyed and deeply moving portrait.

    Johnson and co-writer Mark Heyman may be exploring familiar territory but they do so with a warmth, subtlety and honesty that marks it out.

    • 43 Metascore

    It feels as though it would have been better served as a six-part sitcom, where its sentimentality, broad comedy and fantasy elements wouldn't rub up against each other so badly.

    We are encouraged to find these people stupidly brutal or comedic without being given the slightest idea as to why they might be that way.
