Alice is a reclusive writer, resigned to a solitary life on the seaside cliffs of Southern England while World War II rages across the channel. When she opens her front door one day to find she's to adopt a young London evacuee name Frank, she's resistant. It's not long, however, before the two realize they have more in common in their pasts than Alice had assumed.

Nicely filmed and with a fairytale aura about the entire film. While it's believable, some of the story is too quickly breezed over, such as inter-racial dating in 1940s Britain. Gemma does a good job in portraying an eccentric who blows past stereotypes as she gets an unwanted war refugee dumped on her doorstep. If you're looking for a film that's about fitting into a community (or not), set along the sea in WWII England, this is an enjoyable choice.

3* OK movie. About a lesbian relationship. Not what I expected.

I was surprised at how much I truly enjoyed this movie. The acting was wonderful-especially the lead female actress and the little boy. Although there are the inevitable situations of sadness during a time of war, this movie was laced with enough humor to keep it from being maudlin, and the uplifting ending is a big plus for me!

Not really what I was expecting but it was okay. I think a female would probably enjoy this one more than a guy. Scenery is good though.

Love is so powerful and healing. Not a romance story and sweet love story. The little boy in this movie such a good good actor.
