      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Likable but overly sentimental, Sixty Six has snatches of sharp dialogue but is ultimately too predicable.

      Kristin M. Jones Film Comment Magazine Throughout Sixty Six, Klahr unleashes a dazzling array of visual ideas, deftly combined with sounds, silence, or music and all in the service of what he calls the film's "pop associational mindscape."

      isla s This is a relatively easy watch - its mildly amusing at times and features some decent characters. The cast includes Helena Bonham Carter and Catherine Tate. It's not a particularly good film, nor is it awful but it passes the time ok. I did feel there was a nice sense of British family life at the time it's set (the 1960s) and it had a bit of heart to it, so I'm giving it this rating. I would recommend this film, yes. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Forgettable. Doesn't really ‘peak' Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member A perfectly likeable story of a young Jewish boy in London, 1966 who is planning his bar mitzvah, only to find to his horror, that it is scheduled for the very day that England play Germany in the World Cup final at Wembley. Helena Bonham Carter and Eddie Marsden play parents to Gregg Sulkin's Bernie. There's a few good laughs and it does have a genuinely loveable, feel good script even for a complete football hater like me. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Fantastic British comedy set in 1966. Tears and laughter - British pathos at its best. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review thomas a A quirky, yet poignant, British comedy drama that shows sensitivity towards both Jewish and English cultures alike. "Sixty Six", named for the year the story was set, has a lot of moral values to teach us. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I only watched it cuz Helena Bonham carter was in it.. it was WEIRD!
