For a Boring Night

It's winter and I was bored. So, I sat through this movie . The only good thing I can say is if you have to use the bathroom, you won't miss anything important.

Very pleasant movie

It's a light, touching, kind and funny movie. There isn't any antagonist here, but anyways it was interesting to watch this film. The target audience for this film is whoever likes music. In my opinion, Lily James's acting was really convincing.
