Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
I am a big fan of press gang and used to make a point of watching everything that the cast went on to star in. Paul Reynolds was Colin in press gang, but his character in this film is Dog - a white dreadlocked traveller. I don't want to give away the story but it's basically about the pitfalls of giving up the alternative lifestyle and settling down. As far as I can see, this is one of Rachel Weisz's earliest roles and she is excellent. I don't know if it will ever be repeated and it's not available on VHS or DVD, but my 13 year old grainy VHS gets an airing every year or so.
Remember, play it safe - never get off the bus.
