Rosie is a film about the circles of life. Although it centres on loss - both metaphorically and through narrative, it's setting in natural surroundings aims to lift the viewer and give them hope, while reminding us that nature moves on.
Robert Lindsay is a talented comedic actor who in 11 years of 'My Family' and in the last 6 of them was the most consistent source of laughter in it. He also in the small group of actors who have a legendary sitcom behind them in the form of the excellent 'Citizen Smith'.

Maybe it will do well and prove me wrong, but tucked away on a little channel like Gold I can't see it happening.
