In the credits, "Wood Hill" is spelled as one word ("Woodhill"), but on the scoreboard of the rugby match it's spelled as two. See more »
This was a film that I could absolutely relate to. Like Ned I had to hide my true feelings.It was a very lovely film, but essentially just a film.It does not have the intensity of "Monster Pies" or the heartbreak that "Center of my World" evokes. Maybe "Fair Haven" would adequately describe the emotion that this film arouses in me. Having said that, I would watch it again, if only for the pleasure of seeing "Conor" running around the Rugby pitch. Watch and enjoy.It was a pleasure that will last.
