An interesting showcase for young British talent
30 June 2007 | by (France) – See all my reviews

This Film was being shown in a specialist English speaking video store in the 16th arrondisment of Paris. The clients there are the French version of the Chelsea and Mayfair crowd in London and the films played are aimed accordingly. It caught my eye and i took it out, curious because as someone who casts young actors - I had already seen some extraordinary talent capture the customers of the Prime Time Store. Monk Dawson is no action film, but in almost every other way it is absolutely enticing. The elder performances are somewhat overshadowed by the child actors. Daniel Brocklebank as Monk Dawson is resolutely brilliant, capturing the uncertainties and convictions of teenage faith. His friend Furness, played by Tristan Sherwood-Roberts is the crux of the performances. Too little time was given to this startling screen presence, the highlight of talent on display. Some beautiful actresses - seemingly disappeared now, Paula Yatres, Rhona Mitra (the original model for Lara Croft) gave fun roles. An interesting movie for anyone who cares about life's mysteries, the future of British Acting talent, and enjoying the engrossing and evocative qualities of a great British film experience.
