Little c and I went to see this film on Friday. It was so darling. I loved how the film stayed true to the feeling of the books. The granny chic wardrobe is really part of the film and the clothes are delightful.
Unlike many recent films that get a thumbs down from me as they down-grade our social interaction, each film trying to be more crude and rude than the one before, this film takes the high road praising social grace as an attribute of the well-educated girl, which it is.
While this film is made for the the pre-teen girl, the script is smarter than almost any films I have seen targeted to that demographic.
This is a film, I will buy it for my collection. Oh that respect and good manners would make a comeback in the movies...
