better than you expect

This is a beautifully made film. The whole package is very well put together. Although its quite a simple tale of a factory closing and the impact on its workforce , particularly the main characters , it doesn't lead you to the rosy promised land and instead focuses on the characters personalities and life problems. Its main strength lies in its casting , with Peter Gerety putting in a superb performance , ably backed up by Talia Shire and Billy Browm. If you like human interest films it's well worth watching.
