What are people saying?

  • Daniel S.'s rating of the film Last Holiday

    LAST HOLIDAY finds his place between the philosophical tale and the social satire. Alec Guinness, at times pitiful, at times humourous, is always brilliant as George Bird, a common man associating with the British upper class. The film is not a masterpiece but has smart dialogues and a few interesting scenes. Highly recommended.
