wonderful heartfelt moving period film
27 September 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have been searching for many years to get hold of this film,either on DVD or video.This film was partly made in my home village of Upper Slaughter in the Cotswolds.I was an extra in the film along with my sister,mother,aunties,and many local friends.I am now 33 years old with two lovely daughters,so I am desperate to get a copy of the film to show them.As like the comment above, I also was an extra in the film Joseph Andrews,which was also filmed in the village.I really don't know any other way to get a copy of sailors return, so anyone who could help me would be fantastic.It is a lovely film.The village of Upper Slaughter means so much to me,I was born here and have now married and remain in the village.Anyone who watches this film would enjoy it,its quite sad in parts but is a lovely heartwarming film.
