great movie made me cry at end
I'm glad I didn't miss this, almost didn't watch!!!
Wonderful film. Pity that it seems to be what some Care Homes and the NHS seem to be aiming at replicating in some hospitals.
What can you say, brilliant film, brilliant cast, very touching and very relevant! Well done to all involved in making and airing this this film, more please!

absolutely briliant what a wonderfull fitting end and so enlightning
Just watched this show on the net ! a very endearing programme, as I am nearing retirement i can fully support this sort of situation in this programme !
We need to support this generation as they have lots to offer the next genaration like life skills !
Brilliant film with superb acting. Some care homes are awful, and some are really good, like the one my mother's in, but it does bring it home to you that some things need improving. Food for thought..
Excellent film which is amusing but also brings real things to the public eye!
it was a great film give us more English films

Fab, wonderful, beautiful an absolute treat of a film. Thank you for a super cast, producer, director etc etc. xxxxxxx
Lets have more of this type of film, good acting & great story line
Thoroughly enjoyed the film.
Impossible to get the end of the film!! Why should anyone bother to try to watch 5 on demand if you can't supply a better service? You've lost me for one.
Keeps cutting out again and again and again. DO SOMETHING!
Great film, but I hope my mother wasn't watching it in her retirement home
Well done 5! More like this instead of all the American chic flicks and soppy garbage. Again well done!
wonderful film, wish we had more.
Fantastic feel good film. More please!
