Very Good Acting By Beverley Hewitt
28 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

I've watched this film almost 10 times, i heard of it from a very good friend at work, one character to watch out for is Lara played by the lovely Beverley Hewitt, its sad that she no longer acts as she is by far the better actress in the whole movie, the dialogue is well spoken, the accent captures the tones perfectly,I have since found out that Beverley used to do children's TV, presenting the untied shoelaces show in the early 80s for Scottish TV, and was in Garnoch Way a TV series in the late 80s. The acting world is not the same without Beverley, come back and show them how its done Beverley. get a part in River City. You have just got to watch The Winter flight, forget about Sean bean, the real acting is done by Beverley.
