A British Countryside Marriage (Movie Thoughts: To Olivia)

If you are in the mood for a genteel British drama, look no further than ‘To Olivia,’ which dramatises the family life of author Roald Dahl and Patricia Neal. This film is based on Neal’s book, and is the kind of family saga that used to be filmed all the times. In these times, it feels quaint, almost dated, but it has a nice heart that could touch you. Dahl andNeal’s marriage gets tested when they hit a family tragedy, and int hose times they find themselves triumphing: Dahl write a certain book about a chocolate factory while Neal wins an Academy Award. This is a sweet film that is kind of forgettable, but watch it with the right mood and it will be fruitful.
