Trivia

An Angel for May was shot in Barnsley, Grimethorpe, High Bradfield, Penistone, and Sheffield in South Yorkshire and in Leeds, Marsden, and Slaithwaite in West Yorkshire. The farm ruins that acted as a wormhole transporting young Tom Collins from the 1990s to the 1940s was a set built on fields close to a farm in Penistone and used for three weeks where one nearby hill represented the '40s and another, with wind turbines in the background, was used for the 1990s.

Excellent family fare

I have just seen this movie with my grandson and it was quite enjoyable for both of us. The plot was interesting enough to hold the attention of us both and yet he was able to understand it completely. The young star Matthew Beard is a wonderful and talented actor whose innocence transcended onto the screen with ease. I look forward to seeing him in future endeavors. This movie also reminds many of the horrors and consequences of war without the unnecessary blood and gore that is prevalent in so many of today's movies. It proves that you can get your point across without any foul language or special effects that many directors have fallen in love with today. My only question is that on cable TV where I saw this film it warns of strong sexual content and tat is was not apparent anywhere. I highly recommend this to anyone that wants to sit back and enjoy a good old fashioned movie by a rising star.
