Excellent Don Quixote update
Apart from the currently fashionable under-lighting which puts some scenes in near total darkness this is a most enjoyable & involving drama with ever-smouldering Colin Firth the stranger in town with a past and Katy Murphy (what a wonderful face!) the damsel in distress who he comes to rescue. Her distress involves a mentally-retarded brother, a manipulative, selfish lover, a pile of bills and a Mother who wanders round the house dressed only in her slip.
Donovan buys an old bus and sets up in opposition to the villain of the tale, a monopolistic bus company, Windmill Transport (Geddit?) and battle is joined.
I found one short, violent scene unnecessarily graphic but the plot is beautifully resolved with a most satisfying - and surprising - final scene.
