Did You Know?

Trivia

In the UK, the film is certified as 18 but the two trailers were certified as 12 and 12A, which is unusual for trailers for an 18 film. The BBFC report says that the certificate was given only because of "very strong language", with no mention of violence or sex. See more »

Quotes

Johnno: You don't.

A great up-close and personal look into a piece of recent history that most of us know nothing about and never would have been able to appreciate had this film not been made.
10 July 2019 | by bigboybakerSee all my reviews

You'd be doing yourself a favor not to read anything regarding the plot on this one. It might turn you off and then you'd miss out on a great movie. The subject matter is one that a lot of folks might have an interest in, but it's not exactly the mainstream, so the "topic" of this film, or what it appears to be in the synopsis, may only appeal to a select group. The film is for everyone, however. It's a wonderful and well-told story about people. The film is very well-made from every aspect and it is a very impressive work. It is very good and very enjoyable.
