THIS BEAUTIFUL FANTASTIC

LATEST REVIEWS
'THIS BEAUTIFUL FANTASTIC' TRAILER
Bella Brown is a beautifully quirky young woman who dreams of writing and illustrating a successful children’s book. Despite her abandonment as a child, the all consuming OCD, the unfulfilled dream, her awful boss at the library and her paralysing fear of ora and fauna, Bella is down but not out. She has a spark, an edge, a talent and a voice that we can feel from the get go. This girl has a preternatural survival instinct, having been found in the middle of winter in the middle of Hyde Park as a babe. When Bella is forced by her landlord to deal with her neglected garden or face eviction, she meets her nemesis, match and mentor in Alfie Stephenson, a cantankerous, loveless, rich old man who lives next door and is an amazing horticulturalist.

This sweet mediocrity
Sweet, charming and very British, ‘This Beautiful Fantastic’ is predictable and clichéd, but at the end of the day that doesn’t stop it from being a mildly enjoyable effort.
