Steven Nesbit Outdoes Himself
23 April 2018 | by sandro-krininaSee all my reviews

A movie like Gloves Off comes around once in a generation, if we're lucky--Clean, witty, exceptionally funny, and at times off-beat, with raw realism and heart reminiscent of The Full Monty. Steve Nesbit elicits monumental performances from his cast. This is perhaps one of Paul Barber's best and most complex. Newcomer Kab Silva rises effortlessly to the occasion, the bar set sky high by comedic genii Alexei Sayle and Alan Ford et al.,, to give an award-worthy comedic performance which leaves the audience wanting more. And the entire cast shines, each one seemingly brighter than the next.
