Sad film
20 August 2007 | by (Christchurch, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Caught this on Sunday morning TV in New Zealand and was taken aback by its rather grim examination of a cross-dressing musical hall entertainer at the end of his career even though he doesn't know it. With a son who despises him and a boss who has no loyalty to anyone Kevin Laffan creates a tragic character in Sherry Sheridan. Mention of Mike Leigh in another comment isn't far off the mark - this is emotionally hard hitting piece that only gets the tag of comedy because the characters are comedians by trade and people seem to think people with cockney accents must be funny - there's nothing funny off stage here.
