The car driven by Barbara Marten "Ellen Hardy" is an Austin A30, which was built in the 1950s by the Austin Motor Company. The last letters "BR" of the registration plate indicate the car was registered in the Borough of Sunderland, which was then in the County of Durham at the time the car was registered. See more »
This jewel of a film is strictly for romantics. The film is a quiet character study of a woman who finds the courage to open herself to the possibilities of love and happiness. After a lifetime of repression and fear of disappointing family, the lead character can no longer deny the intense feelings that have developed between herself and her son's schoolteacher, and finally allows herself to experience what she really wants. The film may not contain the flash and raunchiness that many viewers are used to (no kissing, although there is some very heart-warming hand-holding), but for this viewer, it was stirring and captivating, and one of the most vividly romantic pieces I've seen in a long time. Magnificent acting highlighted this beautiful story.
