When will we see this?
20 September 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I am concerned that this movie (or TV special) has not been widely released.

Has it been broadcast in Canada? If not, when will it be broadcast? The writer and Director has taken the trouble to write a plot summary for us on IMDb - which has sparked my interest and desire to see it.

My original route to this finding this movie was via looking at Ben Murphy's biography/profile and seeing that he had a role to play in it (Vincent). I haven't caught anything Ben has been in since his days in Alias Smith and Jones and would love to see him in something again. He, in my opinion, was a quality actor and I was always disappointed we did not see more of him after the Smith and Jones series finished. I notice he has appeared in a number of 'CSI type' shows - none of which I have seen. I hope to get the opportunity to watch The Uniform Motion of Folly soon, as the plot and subject matter are of great interest to me.
