Bawdy, working-class growing up tale of two Yorkshire girls.
This is one of my favourite films of all time (it is a "Film Four" production, who have made some of the best low-budget British films over the last 20 years). Andrea Dunbar wrote the stage play which I have also heard on the radio and it was written as a very serious hard-hitting play - completely unlike the film. It is the tale of two schoolgirls who end up sleeping with the man who they baby sit for. "Are we gonna have a jump tonight", is one line that the girls ask of Bob when he is driving them home at the end of the night. It has been said to be shocking to some people, yet I find it totally amusing and entertaining and the whole plot is not much unlike life I witnessed whilst growing up. Just sit back with an open mind, don't judge and it will entertain.
