Fabulous true story

We loved this movie about a true pottery pioneer who revolutionised the Potteries and also used to visit my granny every Sunday to grind coffee!

Glad to see local landmarks and buildings were used

Great acting by all the actors.

True story of a formidable woman

Really enjoyed the 20s feeling of the movie, the desire for Clarice to do what she loved and ignoring a bit what was around her to get there including the « rules » and what was right at the time. The scene in the modelling workshop are creating that atmosphere between the men and her, their respect of the rules and her creativity.

She was a revolutionary of that after war era and the movie really depicts how different she was by the use of colours or the way she smiles.

Although there is a romance it doesn't take over the story and Matthew Goode is a strong character passionate about his business and being bold. Phoebe Dynevor is a great Clarice Cliff.

Great script, cast and direction.

could have been SO much better

Cliff had a fascinating life, and rather than a 90 minute film, it would have been ideal as a 'Season' on Netflix to give us the meat and bones of her journey to being one of the most famous designers in Pottery - (although clearly some had never heard of her !!)

I thought Phoebe Dynevore was badly miscast - (a case of a young actress gaining fame in a fantasy period drama (Bridgerton), then being offered parts because of this). There was a lot of jumping and skipping about at the beginning, and no empathy at all when she caused the sacking of a colleague. Supporting actors were good - because they had experience - and Matthew Goode is always excellent - but again the background stories disappeared into the ether.

This was a story set in the early 1920s so authenticity with regards set dressings and costume was highly regarded, however its hard to believe that a person of colour would have been employed as a Secretary in the owners office during that period of history. Colour blind casting can work in many instances, but in period dramas not so much.
