Great fun and well observed
21 June 2011 | by DominicHalfordSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed 'Being Sold'! Lots of great observation of the media like the hook... er.. I mean author plugging her book and the footballer who is interviewed in a typical way! I liked the updating sensational headlines presented along side the actual comments which gave a funny comparison - all the many details like that which worked along with the story.

The story was good and full of great characters. It built some real tension as the climax approached and had sincere and funny performances, especially the slobby best friend.

All in all it was very enjoyable and even more amazing having seen the documentary about how it was made... A great piece of work
