Goofs

When Henry watches Great Expectations at the cinema, it is projected at the wrong aspect ratio: despite being made in 4:3, it is projected in widescreen (it looks to be about 16:9) and hence all the people are short and fat. See more »

Good Film with Typical BBC Qualities
2 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

JUST HENRY concerns the plight of a boy growing up in a small Yorkshire town, circa 1950. He misses his WWII hero dad, doesn't like school and doesn't see much point to it even though a new inspiring teacher helps in this regard, and meets Grace, a very interesting girl who finds herself caught between Henry and his mortal foe, Paul. Like many BBC films, JUST HENRY does a fine job of meshing light, charming, funny moods with some very serious conflicts. Not a lot of frills and/or fast action--just an evenly paced film with a some truly memorable characters. Some really tense and unexpected stuff happens toward the end.

JUST HENRY is based upon a novel by Michelle Magorian and has been criticized for doing paltry justice to the book. All I know is that I enjoyed this film, and if the novel is much better (which is often the case), then I look forward to reading it.
