An affecting film
This is a charming film, and the memory of its warmth is still filed away in the back of my mind some 15-years after first seeing it. The understated and compelling performance by Phyllis Logan would make it worth watching alone, but there is the added pleasure of journeyman performances by all concerned. Besides the always great Joan Plowright, I thought another stand out was Tom Watt, although a check here seems to show his further appearances limited. It has been years since I have seen this film come round on television. I really, really, really wish this film would be released on DVD for region 1. I fear that quiet films like this that at the time were seen fit to release on VHS will never see the light of day in a DVD format in the States.
