I thought this was such a charming film! DEFINITELY feel she should have ended up with Vernon, as Billy was a bit too stereotypical hottie-styled-to-look-disheveled. Billy's character was the only underwhelming one; otherwise, they were very endearing. The cinematography/imagery was very ...Read more

I thought the acting was poor by both lead actors. The actress was not able to present a consistent picture of abnormal behavior suggestive of any actual psychiatric disorder. There was no chemistry between the lead actors and their relationship was not believable. It was a cute story but ...Read more

A nice film, with excellent cast, photography, and music. The lead actress does an excellent job not over or under playing her character. While this story glosses over some behavioral abnormalities, it is fun to watch. Bonus extra: I didn't see any cell phones!

A wonderful family film. There is not a weak performance by any of the talent and most of the cinematography fits the mood. The pacing is good as well.

I docked it one star because some of the audio was cheesy and/or mixed too loud or soft. Also, several story points were obvious far ...Read more

Warm, quirky, a little predictable. Felt it was missing something. Tom Wilkinson was wonderful and I loved Anna Chancellor's character. The flower garden stole the show :)

One person accurately described it as a "British Amélie," which piqued my interest as I loved Amélie. This Beautiful Fantastic is watchable and has moments of charm but it could be better. The curmudgeon has a few scene-stealing laughs: "The garden fought back."

It definitely reminded me of Amélie and a tiny bit of Cold Comfort Farm.

There seems to be a variety of feelings about this film. I was moved by it myself. The strange odyssey of a strange human plant named Bella. The transformation was wonderful and miraculous. The players around her were all essential to the story and brilliant in themselves. On the whole, it ...Read more

A little clumsily put together, although its heart is in the right place. Still, I wouldn't watch it again... I'd pass in favor of "Penelope".

I found all of these 93 minutes to be deLIGHT-full. Not just a film but an experience of beauty and glee, warmth and chuckles, quirks and wisdom; I would have liked it to go on and on . . .

this movie has 90% of what it would take to be a delightful light little romp. but the missing 10% is enough that i was left scratching my head rather than enjoying myself.

A "coming out of one's shell" story, for several of the characters. Slight and requiring some suspension of disbelief, but well-acted enough and will fit the bill if you're looking for a "heart-warming" type of story.

What a spectacularly stunning gem of a movie. Highly recommended. A story of growth, self discovery, and opening one's heart. Be prepared to be touched.
