Time Out

"Tom Hooper gets a bit carried away with swoopy shots, and the close-ups are unrelenting, but crucially he lets the filth and the squalor in."

Sky Movies

"Spectacular to look at and often poignantly beautiful to listen to, this won't disappoint the millions who have sighed at the stage play."


"Rings with all the emotion and power of the source and provides a new model for the movie musical."
