Council Intrigue
28 October 2020 | by peterwburrows-70774See all my reviews

How lovely to see a story-line that goes on all the time, except for the ending, and is rarely shown in cinema. The acting is very good and the it moves at pace. The stuffiness of Council meetings hasn't changed much over the 34 years I have been attending and people still find it hard to make a point, Entertaining film.
