    Very very enjoyable, I kind of wish we'd not taken my daughter (her classmates had all already seen it) as there were a few moments where i wasn't sure if she'd get upset and thats a new cinema experience for me.

    But everything else was great too, is there a film Thelma Ritter doesn't elevate?
