Product Description

From the directors of Lawless Heart comes Sparkle, a hilarious and heart-warming comedy about life, love, and getting ahead in the twenty-first century. Sam Sparks (Shaun Evans) is a 22-year old with ambitions: to move to London and join the glamorous PR

Review

This gentle Brit-flick is so unassuming that it takes you a while to realise that it s actually rather good. Relative newcomer Shaun Evans plays Sam, an ambitious young man who cosies up to the glamorous Sheila (Stockard Channing) - only to find his plans in trouble when he falls for young rebel Kate (Amanda Ryan). Meanwhile, his wannabe lounge singer mother Jill (Lesley Manville) is fighting off the devoted attentions of her shy admirer Vince (Bob Hoskins, in a role that s sweetly against type). The characters are nicely drawn, and if it sometimes feels a little too small, it s still a charming and smart rom-com that s worth a look. Sparkle may not be an obvious bobby dazzler but seek it out and you'll be rewarded with a real gem. --Helen O'Hara, Empire

The amazingly wonderful Stockard Channing adapts a perfect British accent in this delightful movie, channeling the persona of Anne Bancroft in The Graduate. It brings back both the simple delights and then the erratic complications of new & old love. The Hollywood veteran cast members bring the comedy & are supported by playful newcomers who help renew the fresh & innocent sense of falling in love. I saw Sparkle at the Edinburgh Film Fest and I look forward to the US release because it's the perfect rom-com to watch over and over- it's refreshing even once you discover all of the surprises...

Lesley Manville's rendition of the Korgis' "Everybody's Got to Learn Sometime" is superb. (This was also covered by Beck in "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind").

Excited to watch this movie, thinking I'd found a diamond in the rough, I sat down with my girlfriend to watch. Within five minutes we were giving each other the 'Are you sure you want to watch this?' looks.

We're patient people, and decided to give it another 20 minutes. But it stinks.

Maybe, maybe, somewhere in there these characters develop compelling personas, or the production values suddenly take a turn from the only-slightly-better-than-high-school-amateur feeling, or the random cuts between scenes make sense... but we decided not to wait around to find out.

I found Sparkle charming, funny and quite enjoyable. I watch a lot of romantic comedies, but this film really stood out for me! It's extremely well written and the actors really bring their characters to life- I love their accents and British sense of humor. This film is fantastic, definitely worth seeing!!!

I knew nothing of this film. It's so quirky and it took me awhile to realize I was indeed watching Stockard Channing whim I adore ( she might have had her look cosmetically altered?) but she was as great as ever and the crazy twists made this an amusing film.
I would recommend it for sure

Happy ending with fun means a great viewing experience. Add Bob Hoskins, sprinkle with the adorable Amanda Ryan and Shaun Evans and stir in Belinda Montgomery and Stockard Channing and it's the perfect recipe for a feel good movie.

I liked the son's Liverpool accent. Characters are related to one another. Sweet movie. The mother and son relocate from Liverpool, England to a friend's apartment in London. Wish there had been more Liverpool scenes.
