Real Homegrown Refreshment
4 November 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

How refreshing it is to see a great little film about real everyday people facing the dilemmas we are all familiar with, the insecurities, the search for acceptance and the ultimate pursuit of contentment, companionship and love. A great deal sweeter, more satisfying and touching than watching aristocratic baffoons stuck in the, oh so tricky existence of the west London elite! Equally touching is the story behind the film it would seem, I see that the director lost his battle with cancer just a year after shooting was finished never getting to witness his first films release, a real tragedy. He has left behind a debut to relish. Robert Hardy turns in a great performance as always with all the warmth and charm you would expect. Craig Henderson and Susie Benton make a delightful duo, while Tom Bacon, better known for harder, darker roles, makes a hilariously calamitous sidekick. All in all a great ensemble of talent. I highly recommend this little triumph against the odds, an independent British film achieving the release it richly deserves, I guess the industry in the UK isn't dead yet!
