The tale of a group of typical twenty-somethings, living in London at the end of the 20th Century. An exploration of hard choices, hard luck and hard living. A dip into the youth culture that is so prevalent in any major city today. A foray into drugs, drink, relationships, growing up, responsibility, lessons to be learnt, changing values and morals and the realization that no matter how far (or fast) you run, the battles are the same wherever you are. "A Little Rain Must Fall" - sometimes life has a way of catching up with you. Written by Sally McLean

Strong, funny, touching ... just plain brilliant!
11 February 2003 | by Iguana007See all my reviews

Watching this film was like watching my own life on screen - without all the boring bits! Having lived in a flat share in South London three years ago that was almost exactly the same as the one shown in the movie (five chicks sharing the same space with very different attitudes to life and each other), this movie made me laugh and think and get teary too.

While all my flatmates are alive and well (as far as I know), we did lose a close friend to drugs during that time and the impact was shattering. This film dealt with the drugs message tactfully and subtley, but was still very realistic and made it's point well - that drugs may provide an escape, but eventually will lead to heartache and misery for all involved.

I most closely related to the character of "Maddy", who was hardest hit by the drug storyline. Her reaction was very similar to mine, and the actress, Joanna Goodchild, who played the role was brilliant in her interpretation of the character. I also really enjoyed the performances of Rebecca Nunn, Sally McLean and James Buckley - although it was an ensemble piece, these three would qualify as the lead roles and they all played their characters beautifully. Aki Omori was very cute and highly annoying (in a good way!) as "Paula". I was also surprised to see Alistair Barrie as "Simon", as I've recently seen him at The Crack Comedy Club (and thought he was hilarious), so it was great to see him in a strong dramatic role. Zara Balfour was suitably rebellious as "Sabrina" and David Hankinson did wonders with probably the least amount of dialogue in the film. Really, the whole cast was incredible.

As a newly-graduated acting student, I found this work inspiring. According to the official site for this film, all the actors were recent drama school graduates, who just went out and made this film rather than wait for the phone to ring. I salute them for their efforts and look forward to seeing more of their work ... well done to all involved.
