4 out of 10 Is there anybody there
rory from Dublin, 03 Feb 2010
An unexpected gem of a movie which centres around the relationship struck up between young boy and retired magician (Michael Caine) residing in retirement home run by young boys parents. Caine turns in a terrific performance and there are some wonderful comic touches here. This is directorial debut from young Irish director John Crowley and would recommend it to anyone.

5 out of 10 Anyone There
Lorie from Kerry, 22 Nov 2010
Michael Caine as far as I am concerned was tailor picked for this film. He played the part brilliant as the aging "jack the lad" from his Alfie days... Bill Milner played the part of the boy in his usual style, I am sure we will see a lot more of this lad in the big screen. Would recommend this film to anyone. Though provoking and excellent casting...

3 out of 10 Is there anybody there
Mark from Dublin, 15 Aug 2011
Not a bad movie and makes you think with some funny bits thrown in, I did enjoy it especially Michael Caine who was impressive, my only complaint was that we nearly saw all the best bits in the trailer so was a little bit let down in the movie it self but again only a minor thing would still recommend this.

3.5 out of 10 Engaging, funny and touching
laura from Dublin, 10 Apr 2010
Michael Caine is brilliant as usual. Some hilarious moments (you'll remember the finger incident long after!), and it's a sweet and touching movie about a young boy whose house is turned into an old people's home, who becomes consumed with what happens after death.

4 out of 10 A Great Caine. A Great Film
Seamus from Monaghan, 07 Feb 2012
Caine turns in another terrific performance although each of the actors is superb. The story of a young boy trying to make sense of life in an old folks home is believable and interesting. It's a great story and it's very well told.

What's it about....
Edward (Bill Milner - "Son Of Rambow") isn't your average 10 year-old. Obsessed with ghosts and the afterlife, his parents (Anne-Marie Duff - "Shameless" and David Morrissey - "Red Riding") are concerned that life might be passing him by. But when Clarence (Academy Award winner Michael Caine - "The Dark Knight"), a retired magician, comes to stay with the family, Edward's world is disrupted and he is forced to interact with the grumpy old man who's taken over his bedroom....
