    Wonderful, layered and thought provoking drama written by Patrick Gale. Another excellent BBC drama.

    Mini-series really liked, just looked at one breath using boxxy software with my mother language . The film is about rejection, condemnation, tragic love.

    Man in an Orange Shirt aspires to be a both a romantic tearjerker and a heartfelt family drama. It doesn’t quite succeed on either point, but it has merit nonetheless.

    For most of its two hours, “Man in an Orange Shirt,” directed by Michael Samuels, neatly knits the cinematic and sweeping with the subtle and specific into a kind of naturalistic melodrama. It will fill you with feelings, if you let it.

    The film moves on two generations to another era, our own--and regrettably, for the most part, except for the luminous presence of Vanessa Redgrave, extraordinary as Flora, now grown old. ... [Her grandson's] a regular user of dating apps, but he’s just not a happy guy--which is, of course, the point of this final section, awash in sermonizing on the necessity of finding true love.
