Worth Any/All Efforts Required to Locate a Copy
8 September 2000 | by (Bishop Hill, IL) – See all my reviews

A film of almost inconceivable beauty & directness. Helena Bonham-Carter as sniffling Margaret is well past grand, as is Clive Russell as her Neil, with bagpipes, & Kate Nelligan as Mom. Not for the foolishly squeamish, but all others will experience grave, if occasionally hilarious, delight.
