Working Class drama not to be missed!
14 March 2000 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

With my dream cast including Ken (Takin' Over the Asylum),Stott, Crissie (Ladybird, Ladybird) Rock and Ricky (Raining Stones) Tomlinson plus a screenplay from Trainspotting's Irvine Welsh and the superb Jimmy M'Govern of Cracker & The Lakes this could hardly fail and it doesn't!

True story of botched industrial action makes terrific viewing as long as you make allowances for plenty of strong language from the protagonists.

With lots of gallows humour amidst the drama;( sample line "The last time I saw any dirt on you was Ash Wednesday")this was easily the best film I saw on any medium in 1999.

Watch for a sort of "Making of..." with M'Govern discussing his working methods and showing the input from the real-life participants in the strike.
