Construction workers of a demolition site in Belfast, where filming took place, were told to put the tearing down of the houses on hold and leave a number standing for the shooting of the film. The remainder of the houses were then blown up for the movie (for the effect of the bombs in the Second World War). See more »

Another Richard Attenborough Triumph!
1 January 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Superb acting, phenomenal directing - I was hooked from the very start of the film. Cannot wait for it to come out on DVD as I will watch it over and over again!!

You can actually "feel" the love involved with all of the young friends, the support they give to each other is second to none. I would hope to have at least one friend who could make me feel the same way.

Neve Campbell is a very versatile actress. She is such a believable "girl next door". You feel you could meet up with her and just chat to her as a person. She is a very emotive person, no matter how much a part she has, you want her to become the "winner".

Shirley MacLaine is, as usual, such a powerful actress and Christopher Plummer is one of my all time favourites. The mix of actors/actresses has really been considered. It felt like I was watching a documentary (meant in the best possible way)as I could have been a fly on the wall participating in the storyline.
