Very enjoyable, largely unknown movie
Likable, surprisingly gentle comedy. Not many laugh-out-loud moments, but lots of charm. Endearing characters, a simple and plausible story, and very fine acting, especially by Joan Plowright, whose character is closest to the leading role. Alicia Silverstone's on the box cover, and she's beautiful and winning, but it's really an ensemble film, with all the main actors a pleasure to watch. I have it on tape, but I like it enough to buy the DVD.
