    Can one performance save an entire film from mediocrity? Judi Dench does her best but even her talent and flair couldn't rescue this movie from entering my long list of films that left me utterly indifferent.

  1. Posh meets prole in this period drama elegantly directed by Stephen Frears (Dangerous Liaisons, Prick Up Your Ears).

    It offers a feel-good experience, but without the heavy dose of schmaltz that often accompanies such a production.
  3. An absolute delight from start to finish.
