Trivia

Despite attempting for a UK PG rating at the time producer "David Puttnam" was told by BBFC censor "James Ferman" that the film had to be given a 15 as the story concerned an underage girl losing her virginity. Puttnam later claimed that the star was over 18 and the film contained no nudity or obscene language, and the 15 certificate had lost the film most of its intended audience. See more »

A lovely film
11 October 2003 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I got hold of this film at a shop in Soho. When I saw it, I was absolutely thrilled to see it. Beautifly directed and acted by a cast of unknowns. But, I saw it advertise at various cinemas. I won't let that videotape go.
