Enjoyed beyond expectation.
24 April 2017 | by johnfrfSee all my reviews

A film made locally and with largely amateur actors. One would normally have only moderate expectations, but let me say that these can be largely set aside, such is the impact of and standards set by this film. It tackles a tricky subject (testicular cancer) with due seriousness, and yet the story is told with such a lightness of touch and a degree of good humour that it makes for easy and entertaining viewing. The performances are such that one can readily forget that one is watching amateur players. For the most part the playing is convincing, with only the odd minor role failing to convince. Chris Hudson and Elizabeth Joyce Morris in the central roles are outstanding in delivering a witty script by Geoff Saunders, and Darren Scott's direction is remarkable for one new to film-making.
