Trivia

Lesley Sharp's big scene as Valerie involved an 8-minute soliloquy while she is walking along the streets between back-to-back houses. Given the length of the scene, and the chances of either her or the crew making a mistake, it took sixteen takes to film. Lesley Sharp estimates that she walked a total of five miles while filming the scene! See more »

True art
8 February 2009 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

This year, in August 08, I was asked to play the role of Eddie in TIE's (Theatre in English Youth Theatre, Brussels) production of 'Road', by Jim Cartwright. The first thing I did after accepting the part was to search it on the internet. When I arrived on ''Alan Clarke's Road'' I was surprised to see it had been made into a film as well as a play. After watching the film, I truly understood what the roles of Eddie and Brink were truly about.

This film is a true piece of art, and possibly the greatest thing I've ever seen on television since Threads in '84.

This film truly does Cartwright's play justice. Thank you Mr. Clarke!
