Yes, It's a Gem...
24 April 2002 | by (Miami, FL) – See all my reviews

Richard Burton's first film and Dame Edith Evans before her smash hit in Wilde's "Earnest"(and after establishing herself in the theatre and knighted), plus a wonderful cast of supporting characters and an atmosphere of solid strength of morals and ethics which only British films can evoke so memorably on celluloid.

This movie is a gem because it seeps into the deepest crevices of our hearts by a subtle interplay of mood and character study where words fail and acting skill take over.

'The Last Days of Dolwyn' is highly recommended. If you have the chance see it.
