    It’s a lusciously shot and brilliantly written and acted account of how the British aristocracy and progressives in high society fell in love with what can best be described as the tantalizing edginess of jazz music and the sense of exploration and wonder it brought to those who heard it even though society at the time was not ready to accept what it all implied.

    The story has ample pulling power. But the music is its driving force--all day and all of the night.

    I have not had more enjoyment, nor my wife, from anything on television, as good as this. The writing is superb, the acting, impressive, andI have not had more enjoyment, nor my wife, from anything on television, as good as this. The writing is superb, the acting, impressive, and the cast, Oh, the cast. This begs to be a series.......Please? I think Angel Colby is incredible. Jenna Coleman is absolutely wonderful, and John Goodman was very intense. My mind kept wondering where the storyline would go, and it never disappointed me. The photography and lighting was excellent, and the patinas on all the old buildings just added to the era feel of the movie. Costumes were perfect. The whole thing was grand. I Loved it.
