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 »

Tooting Bec Common starring on the big screen
23 March 2014 | by gerrykerins891See all my reviews

Uplifting and heartwarming story well scripted and a wonderful way to bring the real star of the show, Tooting Bec Common, to the big screen with it's variety of people, characters, social situations, wildlife, trees and general ecology. I have some history on this common having used it as a playground and discovery centre for my children as they grew up and the blend of stories is truly representative of the pattern of life it carries every day. I loved trying to figure out the scene locations, but that's an indulgence for locals. The social documentary also stands out in it's own right. Well done and to the cast and crew for bringing such an adventurous and brave production to fruition.
