Great Direction!
31 January 2019 | by theatreonwaxSee all my reviews

Making a feature is in itself a huge undertaking. Actually pulling it off into a coherent and entertaining film is another. This is spot on. Wonderful diverse cast and a great premise beautifully directed by Dave Gilbank. A social statement on these divided times. Brilliant!
