An Awfully Big Adventure
We watched An Awfully Big Adventure over the weekend. Alan Rickman and Hugh Grant are in it but Georgina Cates plays the central character and the film is about her characterís coming of age. Georgina is a bit of a chameleon. In this film, she looks nothing like her IMDB photo. Uneven and slow is about the only way I can describe An Awfully Big Adventure. It had a handful of funny moments, a handful of poignant moments, quite a few tedious moments, and a lot of moments I simply didnít understand. There are a lot of films I like to see again for the little things I might have missed but it has to meet a threshold of interest. This one is well below that bar. It was better than a poke in the eye. But not much.

In the QOTD, someone else offers another, equally realistic one:
