Any Good?

IMDB User Rating 7.9/10
Metascore (Critics Rating) 8/10

Total Films Jane Crowther scored it 8/10 and wrote:

For those seeking comfort, kindness and a sense of cherishing in a turbulent world that seems to reward cruelty over caring, A Beautiful Day will be cinematic balm. Surrender to it and bring tissues.

MGN Review

Perhaps being British and unfamilar with the aforementioned Mr Rogers I am missing something.

The movie is superbly shot and acted but as a drama never really gets going. It's nice but to a British audience anyway it may lack the appeal it has to the US audience and critics who in the main rate it very highly.

Well put together quite uplifting but a little bland in general.

MGN Rating 6.5/10
