Show Synopsis

Previously filmed in 1935 with Ann Harding, Enchanted April, a romantic novel by Elizabeth, was remade in 1992. The first film skips along superficially at 66 minutes: the second, directed by the always intriguing Mike Newell, runs 101 minutes, allowing for richer characterizations and a bottomless reserve of brilliant dialogue.

Simply Delightful

I've watched this movie over and over again. It's British and to my knowledge was never a big hit in the US, but I find it delightful. My draw is first of all to the idea of daring to do something out of the box of one's ordinary life, secondly to the characters and their frames of reference. All of them are well cast, and I enjoy the way they play off of one another in this romantic story. It's definitely a relationship rather than an action film. I definitely recommend it.

Miranda Richardson was a doll!

Miranda Richardson, Joan Plowright, Alfred Molina, Josie Lawrence, Polly Walker, Michael Kitchen and the rest are very believable in this Mike Newell directed project.

I watched it when I was sleepy and still liked it.

An enchanting movie

I have loved this movie for years. Can't say enough about it. I can't watch it without
getting a lift in spirits. It can be many things--funny, romantic, sad and poignant.
I especially love the ladies, but the male actors are also wonderful. Especially
love Alfred Molina and Jim Broadbent. The characters live up to those in the book
very well.

Favorite Movie of All Time

film is a delight from beginning to end. The performances are
brilliant. The scenery a feast. Enchanted April gets me through the
dark days of JanuFeb in Wisconsin. There is a garden ready any time I
need one. Finally it is out on DVD for zone 1. I have worn out two VHS
tapes of this movie! Enjoy it!
