Ralph Outen (Eddie Izzard) is a hot-shot advertising executive with a taste for the flash and stimulating, and who is not very happy to be turning 40. He is intrigued when he is deliberately not invited to his old school reunion, which prompts him to drop by several of the old friends he had left behind, all of whom are experiencing changes of their own. Three-part drama series (164 mins), first shown on Channel 4 in 2003. Written by
I found `40' to be a very interesting piece of television. Maybe a tad too deliberately calculating in the way it was written, it kept me hooked all the way along. Excitingly directed, well photographed and brilliantly acted. Superb all round.
