This film stars Judi Dench and Dustin Hoffman. It's a lovely feel good film with gentle comedy. Highly recommended.

I loved it. How stupid am I, took me a while to realise why it had that name!🤣

Oh I loved that film Judy Dench was really good in it such a lovely film I wanted a tortoise after watching it. I like films when it looks like the actors are enjoying being in it.

I love Judy Dench what a wonderful actress she is she looked lovely in the film. I had tears of joy in my eyes as it was such a pleasure to watch.

I loved that film too, so beautifully acted. I did worry about the tortoises hanging there!

It’s lovely isn’t it?
I remember watching it on tv a few years ago during the Christmas holiday.

I loved it too when it first came out, gentle and heartwarming. Remember reading the Roald Dahl story to my kids.

There's a film with Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson, and I think it's called "Last Chance". It's another gentle comedy in a similar vein to Esio Trot.

Susie42 The film you are thinking of is Last Chance Harvey.
