the family way
- kevin sellers
The industrial midlands of England in lovely living color...and therein lies the problem with this film. It's too damn sweet. Maybe if I hadn't seen Mike Leigh's movies, where family conflict is not so neatly wrapped up with a pretty bow, I could go all in for this often perceptive, sometimes treacly offering from the Boulting Brothers. Pretty good acting, though, especially from the two Mills, Hywell Bennet, and Marjorie Rhodes. And some of the scenes, like the father/son arm wrestling sequence and the rather drab wedding, are extremely well done. Give it a B.
Wonderful performances and touching story
Touching drama following a young newlywed couple struggling through their first few months of marriage. They are forced to live with his well-meaning parents which puts a strain on the young couple's love life. Wonderful performances by Hayley Mills and Hywel Bennett as the young couple and John Mills and Marjorie Rhodes as his parents and Murray Head as his younger brother. Paul McCartney did the music. Lovely movie about family, love, and marriage.
A sweet movie
This movie really is not a comedy, per se. Even the basic premise of the movie is a side story. It is a movie about love and the quiet manner in which a family interacts and shows love for each other. The moments are subtle and must be watched intently with attention to each character as they converse with each other. Love between mother/son, father/son, nonjudgemental love, love with a friend, love between husband wife.Wow, what a gem. Absolutely enthralled with the final scene with John Mills.Interestingly, Murray Head, who plays the other son, played Judas in the original cast album Jesus Christ Superstar.
The Family Way has father and daughter together
- Mary George
I saw this movie when I was a teenager and I watched it again a few weeks ago.Sir John Mills and his lovely daughter Hayley are wonderful actors and since they were together in this film it made The Family Way even more special.The actress that played John Mill's wife was hilarious and I personally think that she stole the show.A special movie for British cinema.
Well worth seeing
Quite an enjoyable film with a teriffic cast, including the young married couple and their elders. A nice surprise, Hayley Mills, all of 20, doing a nice tasteful nude scene (standing in her bath tub showing her backside). Definitely recommended.
it's about time
- gene duffy
this movie was made in 1967. it is by today's standards a very good true to form movie. don't we think it's about time it was released on dvd? john mills role alone is great not to mention everybody else in the movie. lets go so we can enjoy a good everyday life movie. gene
