I love this Canadian film, perfect for Remembrance or Veterans Day
13 November 2011 | by (Windsor, Ontario) – See all my reviews

Billy Bishop is a Canadian hero and icon, having shot down the most enemy planes ever, in the First World War. This was originally a play, written in 1978 by the two actors, and thankfully made into this unique film. Fortunately I was able to see this at a film festival, on Remembrance Day no less, in which the producer was present for a question-and-answer period afterward. I absolutely loved it. It was based on many letters written from Billy to his love, Margaret, during the Great War. Willis-Sweete is one of the best directors at adapting stage work for the big screen. I hope to see more of her work, and only wish my eight year-old son had been with me to be inspired by one of the greatest Canadians who ever lived.
