One of, if not my most, anticipated Film of the year. Looks excellent – especially Mirren, Puri, and Dayal. Hope it builds Oscar potential, but definitely looks Globe friendly.May 13, 2014 at 10:58 am #153749
O man I feel hungry now. Yummy trailer.May 13, 2014 at 12:14 pm #153750
A trifecta of negatives – Buena Vista releasing, Dreamworks producing (other than Spielberg directing, only The Help has had any traction) and yesterday’s news Lasse Hallstrom directing.August 5, 2014 at 1:27 pm #153751
Went to a press screening last night and have to say (though a bit bias) that this surpassed my expectations – and it seems the audience too, giving it a loud applause at the end. It’s a beautifully shot, charming film with great performances all around highlighted by Mirren, Dayal, and especially Om Puri.
Definitely a Golden Globe friendly film and a lock for Comedy/Musica Picture and Helen Mirren. Dayal has a shot at an Actor nom and I hope Puri can sneak into a tough supporting race.
Worth the price of admission, but as everyone is saying, don’t go hungry or make sure you have dinner plans for directly after.August 5, 2014 at 1:54 pm #153752

Helen Mirren definitely has a 100% chance at nabbing the Comedy/Musical Actress Golden Globe nomination. The film is also in the running for a Comedy/Musical Picture nomination. It’s a well done movie.August 5, 2014 at 2:51 pm #153755
Eh, it’s pretty maudlin and middling reviews won’t help. Mirren is nothing special either. She was better in Hitchcock. Doubt it goes comedy considering it’s overly melodramatic tone.August 5, 2014 at 10:43 pm #153756
I can’t stand Spielberg putting his name on everything. Doesn’t he care about his reputation at all? Also, he doesn’t need the money. What does he actually do to produce a film? Show up once to check-in on the production with Oprah? Provide part of the money? Does he ever go out of his way to help older artists-visionary directors who have trouble getting financing? Or emerging talent not born to Hollywood privilege? Besides trying to attach his name to Stanley Kubrick and David Lean wherever possible, of course.September 6, 2014 at 5:10 pm #153757
I just watched the film, and was really pleasantly surprised. Completely surpassed my expectations. Why Puri isn’t in the discussion for Supporting Actor is shocking. He was fantastic in the film and elevated every scene he was in. He’s my new personal #1 in Supp. Actor.
