"What's the answer?" "There isn't one."

Rachel Tunnard has created a delightful, cosy and funny film.

A very authentic piece with an exceptional script and perfectly placed actors. The four women (Jodie Whitaker, Lorraine Ashbourne, Eileen Davis, Rachael Deering) are wonderfully alive. Ben Goldstein is excellent as the calming love (dis)interest who is "definitely not gay". The cast also features the always exceptional Alice Lowe, and an impressive Ozzy Myers as the adorably mischievous boy who looks the part with his new gun bag and penis badge to offset his sheriff's star.

The film is understatedly rich. This provides much of its magic. It doesn't seem to be at all confused nor reach beyond its limits and scope. There is a plethora of detail, character and warmth. The sickly, drab and empty factory produced romance of modern American and English cinema (Love Actually) is a polar opposite to this rich, natural and awkward love story.

There is a lot of love in this film. It causes the pain, aimlessness and feeling of abandonment and loss, but provides the support, colour and hope.

Rachel Tunnard has delivered a perfect portrait of some facets of human love.

A wonderful film

Is Adult Life Skills perfect? No. But is it entertaining, endearing, and does it boast a beautiful performance from Jodie Whittaker and strong supporting cast? Oh yes it does. Whittaker deserved every ounce of that BIFA Nomination for Best Actress.

While the film isn't perfect, I don't see why it has a 6.2 out of 10. It is much better than that.

A lovely little gem

First of all I am not a native speaker.

Well. I must say I have fallen in love with this movie. It's one of those beautifully crafted little gems that have heart and depth and just make you smile and also cry a little bit. Sure, there are other (more ambitious) movies out there tackling the same theme - going through life, losing and finding and coping and surviving and not being alone - but I just love the simplicity and kind of raw honesty of this one.

Anyway, to sum it up - characters are quirky and lovable, dialogues smart and funny and I can only recommend this movie if you are in a mood for something slow yet uplifting.
