Storyline

Two working-class Englishmen spend their free time arguing about greyhound-racing and Winston Churchill. They also read the papers, especially the gossip columns and Society pages. In a bar one day, they meet a film star who they've read about, and subject him to a savage, and apparently motiveless, beating. Written by Peter Brynmor Roberts

5 May 2012 | by (New York, United States) – See all my reviews

While screenplay is flawless, the performance of the two leads is dismal. I don't understand how can viewers be so blinded as to sing accolades for these performances. There is no timing, there is no connection it's all forced and without any feeling whatsoever. Actors do not connect with their characters and you can clearly see they formed opinions about them. The whole thing is hopeless, perhaps with few more months of rehearsals and with actual understanding and non-judgment of their characters this could possibly be filmed, but as it is it was not ready for filming. It's a disgrace something like this should be shown to anyone.

Shallow performances and judgmental actors allow for view of the actor's personalities and mindsets without them realizing it, if it was me caught red handed like this I would do everything I could to remove this record of my inability to perform as an actor.
