Aroview: Rewarding biopic of Gilbert & Sullivan's ('HMS Pinafore', 'Pirates of Penzance') creative partnership that yields not so much drama as fascinating, plentiful detail of Victorian life and stagecraft. As a rift between the partners is slowly mended in the creation of 'The Mikado', Dir. Leigh (SECRETS AND LIES) draws quirky, restrained performances from a cast that include Jim Broadbent, Timothy Spall and Allan Corduner.

5 stars (Exceptional) This is a great film particularly for any Gilbert and Sullivan fan. Using musically trained actors for the parts is a master stroke and lends so much to the overall impact of the film.~Smithoid
