A well crafted drama filmed in the idyllic setting of the Isle of Wight
It's about time that television tackled the issue of school related drama in a sophisticated adult fashion. As Reach for the Moon reached its denouement I found my attention torn between the taught drama as the many interwoven sub-plots were played out against the beautiful backdrops of an England (in this case the Isle of Wight) almost all but lost beneath the relentless march of the motorways. I just hope that someone has the vision to bring this to the silver screen whilst there are still such unspoilt pockets of our remarkable planet remaining.
