I liked it.
It was sweet, and wry, and funny, and endearing. It was about important things such as prejudice, character, tradition, obligation, family, and age. It was well-written and perfectly paced and had good characters and — I really can’t say a bad thing about it.
I didn’t love it.
I can’t quite put my finger on why. Was it too middlebrow? Yes, I think that might be it.
