Rupert Grint's portrayal of Ben is great.
Rupert Grint's portrayal of Ben in this movie is great. Ben is a wanna-be poet with dreams of acquiring his driving license. However, he is held back at home by an over-bearing mother and a vicar father who seem more concerned with their careers rather than their son. When Ben takes a part-time job with Evie, he finds himself wanting to spend more time with her because she encourages him in his dreasms. I don't want to say anything more about the movie so you can discover how Ben develops in this "coming of age" movie. My only complaint is that there was too much swearing in this movie and a bedroom scene (not sexually explicit, however -- that was the reason I rated it four stars.) I would not recommend this movie for small children. Julie Walters, who plays retired actress Evie (also played Molly Weasley, Ron's mother, in Harry Potter) also gave a good performance. Rupert Grint is turning into a fine actor and it was nice to see him in something besides the Harry Potter movies. I recommend this movie for anyone aged 16 and up. I believe this movie is good for parents to discuss with their teen-aged children the importance of faith in God, dreams, attitudes and making good choices in life. I believe this movie gives fine examples of what to do and not do when it comes to making choices.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
