Beautiful indeed. A bit of a love story without it being the focus. Intergenerational community, personal growth, rising to and overcoming challenges.

Lovely and sweet, very simple plot and inspiring about gardening and following your creative dreams, but a bit patriarchal.

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

As the title says: This is beautiful, fantastic.

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 :)

sweet and charming - a nice, easy film when you're not in the mood to think but dream.

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.

I *loved* it.

Excellent, but I wish she ended up with the other guy.

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

Beautifully shared. Chilled entertainment on a Sunday evening, like a bedtime story.

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 . . .
