Did You Know?


After the film didn't attract a distributor on the festival circuit, the producers secured a one-off screening at one London cinema on January 19th, 2014. It went on to sell out for nine weeks in a row (playing every Thursday and Sunday) at which point Picturehouse Cinemas offered to give the film a nationwide release in the UK on June 10th, 2014. It was the first film ever to receive a nationwide release through Picturehouse without a distributor attached. See more »

Local story with universal themes-take your hankies!
19 January 2014 | by philip-388See all my reviews

Saw the London première at Clapham this afternoon. Excellent script, great performances across the board and engaging from beginning to end. There isn't a duff moment or naff line to be heard. Brilliant score and Tooting Common has never looked so beautiful and diverse. It's a great condemnation of film business that movies like this have to fight so hard to get a look in. Hoping it goes onto bigger and better things. I'm biased, living just round the corner from Tooting Common but it's could be any Common, anywhere in the world - well south west London at any rate. And you will get through the tissues as well-I did-take your man- size. The characters are quirky, eccentric but always the right side of believable and nowhere patronised or looked down at.
