Did You Know?


On the night before the 2014 BAFTA Awards (The British version of the Academy Awards) host Stephen Fry tweeted this personal recommendation to his 9 million twitter followers: "Common People" is a rare gem, the kind that makes you thrilled to have discovered it. With no real expectations I started to watch this wonderful film, expecting a gentle reflective hour and a half - but "Common People" is so much more than that. With beautiful performances and a quiet firmness it pushes you to an understanding of human motive and love that is intensely moving and highly rewarding. I recommend this so highly." See more »

A film for people watchers everywhere
14 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

Shot entirely on one South London Common,this film celebrates the diversity of "ordinary" people in an "ordinary" location.Stories expected and startling,brought to the screen by some beautifully crafted and often understated performances.You may never look at a park bench in quite the same way again....

When I booked my ticket to see the film at Clapham Picture House and realised it was 90 minutes long,I did wonder if there might be some boring bits.Not the case as the action is perfectly measured and moves around the Common.Judging from the reactions around me,it was great to recognise favourite spots too! Go while you can,I am planning a second visit.Stay if you can for the Q & A session for more insight on the making of this great film.
