Unrealised potential
22 April 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a very sweet film - from I think the Film 4 strand of the mid 80's. Neither lead fulfilled their potential but its particularly surprising that Nicola Cowper has ended up living with a convicted robber and murderer - that can't be easy. Seems a real waste to me.

The premise is pretty simple - telling the story of a barmaid and the young airman who forms an attachment to her. Things are of course far from straight forward. In the background to this are recent military campaigns such as the Falklands Conflict making the idea of actually being called into action seems the more likely and thus the stakes that much higher.
