Saw this the year I left Aberdare
1 January 2009 | by See all my reviews

I watched this movie as it was made in my town where I grew up. My friend Debbie is not accredited to the movie, but plays a very small part in it. I was quite surprised to see that it was quite good. I now live in the US, but the Rex cinema was a place I had many a movie night with my mom, and dates while in my teens. I would recommend seeing it as it shows what a small town has to deal with when trying to accomplish something. This is no way a spoiler for the movie, but there was a challenge, and it was met in a very strange way. Enjoy! The store that is involved in the movie was one I shopped at, and worked at for a short time after leaving school. I hope the shop it is still in my town and growing strong. I wish I hadn't have read that the Rex cinema had been demolished, but I guess it wasn't making money any longer and needed to be taken down.
