a beautiful show


Senior Member
I remember when I was a child, I read a friendly letter written by someone as they were required in their class. What I don't find natural is the sentence in bold, though it's perfectly understandable:

Dear So and So,

. . .
We will watch "Return to Oz". It's a beautiful show.
. . .

Sincerely Yours,

In this letter, he invited his other classmate to come over our house and they would watch a video (VHS was popular then). How would a native English speaker express the same idea? I know that there are many possibilities. What do you think?

    I'd say It's a brilliant/great film, FF ... unless it was a film of a stage production of Return to Oz, in which case I might say It's a brilliant/great show.
