PG-13 | | Comedy, Drama
A coming of age story about a shy teenage boy trying to escape from the influence of his domineering mother. His world changes when he begins to work for a retired actress.
When filming, Rupert Grint was only 16 which meant it was illegal for him to drive (the legal age in the UK is 17), so they had to film his driving scenes in private roads.
I will not be bullied, even by an emotional cripple!
The bird that they look up at isn't a Skylark but a Swallow.
In the opening titles, the names of the main cast and crew are arranged around a map as if they were street names.
