Aroview: Set in the tiny Welsh village of Ogw and embracing the national obsession with singing, this doggedly eccentric comedy is not for all tastes yet has engagingly off-centre performances by Rachel Griffiths and Jonathan Pryce.
Repressed by her well-meaning but conceited father (who buys her a cabbage for her birthday!) awkward, 33-year-old virgin Annie-Mary becomes slowly liberated after finding her voice (and her wings) in a karaoke competition. Broadly humorous and shamelessly manipulative, the ever-so-familiar premise has enough quirk and heart to potentially ambush one’s expectations and emotions.

4 stars (Very Good) Rather delightful off-beat tale of one small-town woman's attempt to break out of her shell, and go after her dreams. Equally funny, sad and touching, it manages to leave you with a big smile. ~GenXGirl
3 stars (Good Enough) Doesn't miss a beat from the socially awkward Annie Mary to her best friend, wee Bethen Bevan. Is a bit too tidy in some places but altogether a heartwarming tale of a small township and a woman breaking away from her fathers dominance. Kahuninja ~Kahuninja
