Cast chemistry was dandy. I ended up caring for all the characters as dimension and depth was carefully added throughout. Subtle stuff, clever use of the whole screen to enhance the endearing qualities of the troupe. Each performance was balanced and folks gave the 'moment' to those who should have it. Music choices were great and the original music for the movie was loads of fun. Lots of humor, but I did need to use Closed Captioning to understand some of the dialogue, old American ears! Some distinctive British language that this Vermont farmer did not 'get' right away, but it was so well laid out in context that there was not much of a problem creating meaning. It was a blast!
