Car dealer having to do community service seeks to make a dying boy's wishes come true
28 December 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Sentimental but not overly mawkish Christmas drama. Laurence Fox plays wealthy London car dealer Jonathan Donald, whose life revolves around closing the next big deal. Sentenced to 60 hours community service helping a group of disadvantaged special needs children, including a boy with a terminal heart condition, he reappraises the priorities in his life. Good performances from cast, with Jack McMullen as Fast Freddie and Sarah Smart as a dedicated community worker stand out. While this drama will not live long in the memory and has a rather leaden script, it passes the time well enough and is amiable albeit rather gritty fare for Christmas.
