Charming film with great ensemble acting. No one steals the show, but as usual, Matthew Goode is spot on! A film that is suitable for the entire family.

A wonderful Show. I spent a lot of time in Corfu and this show captures the magic of the place. Met Gerald on several occasions as well, a larger than life character to be sure!
