I found this an excellent film, with a good cast and a great performance by Mark Rylance as Dr Kelly. It seemed to be of theatrical release quality. I hope a DVD will be available.
The producers have clearly made a great effort to ensure that the events and the roles of the people involved come as close to reality as possible. Unusually for a film that portrays real-life events, I found this totally believable. I think it is a fair representation of events, no character seemed unfairly or improperly portrayed. I was left with a strong impression of how a string of seemingly unimportant events can have tragic consequences. I truly hope that the Kelly family feel this is a fair film. Dr Kelly comes out of it very well - I hope the film will serve as a reminder to the nation of how we lost one of our most valuable public servants, and how our government failed in their duty of care for him.
It was a characteristically bold move by Channel 4, that has been most successful.
