Trivia

Director Sean McAllister disagreed with the BBFC's decision to give the film a '15' certificate as he believed that the film was important for children to see and that the 'strong language' heard in the film is nothing different from what the children are exposed to in their everyday lives.

A moving tribute to 'Ull

I'm biased. I love film and I love Hull. Lived in either Hull or its vicinity all my life. Would I have got the same nostalgia and feeling from this film if I didn't? Probably not. But you'd have to have a heart of stone not to feel for Steve and his plight. All he wants is a break - he has much to offer. But like many people living in today's Britain, dreams are just that. If you're not one of the lucky few (I put myself in that bracket - not through talent but by being in the right place at the right time), 'social mobility' is but a pipe dream. To see the confidence in Harvey grow like it did was wonderful. That is a success story. Without getting too political, it's hard to see how such ventures could be funded in the future without the ring-fenced City of Culture money. Will there be a lasting legacy? I have my doubts - and at times you could see Steve's frustration pouring out. I hope he makes a success of his Beats Bus company - he deserves it.
