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.
Screenwriter Jeremy Brock was reportedly inspired by his own teenage experiences working for Dame Peggy Ashcroft.
To wit, I leave you with this quote penned by my dear friend, William Shakespeare: "When the shit hits the fan, get a tent."
During the initial Edinburgh scenes, the background changes from raining to cloudy to almost clear, to rainy, all basically within the same shot.
Dedication: "For Rod Hall, 1951-2004".
