What a bonus!
9 June 2019 | by mshturnerSee all my reviews

Yesterday was very wet, took off to the Abbeygate Cinema in Bury St Edmunds to watch this wonderful movie. Have always admired Brian Cox, this movie is probably his very best performance, with a great script, direction, photography and supporting cast. I urge you to watch it, you will certainly not be disappointed!
