CAUGHT IN THE ACT is a hilarious, heart-warming comedy about deceit and integrity, friendship and folly and the triumph of humanity over greed. Set in the beautiful Welsh valleys, it tells the story of a corrupt parish council embezzling EU money to pay for their decadent lifestyles instead of funding the cultural development of their town. They soon find themselves having to perform the unimaginable task of producing one of the great Shakespearean plays for the most important festival in the EU cultural calendar.Written by
The song playing during the bar scene is 'Memo to the Masses' by P2P Music Productions. Despite being played on continual loop during the scene, it is never credited due to it's late inclusion in the film. See more »
Funny and unique
Hurrah for a film with an original storyline!
A great cast bring this bittersweet tale to life, where the humour is reasonably gentle, it's more of a bring a smile to your face kind of comedy than full on belly laughs, but it works well, and I can't understand why there aren't any reviews for it, and why it isn't more well known than it is. It's good enough to be up there with the likes of' Pride' and 'Saving Grace' in the British comedy league.
It's Steve Speirs who co-wrote and produced it that carries the film, and a fine job he does, his character is believable, and played with the right balance of pathos and comedy.
If you get the chance to see this do so, we'll worth watching, and it'll make you think about your local council...
