| Retro Film Making At Its Most Original
I was lucky enough to see this underrated gem of a film at its premiere in the unlikely but wholly appropriate setting of Rochdale in the North West of England.

The capacity house were all moved and gripped by the power of the performances, the quality of the script and the brilliant authenticity of the perfectly captured period.

This is a film that has been made on the proverbial shoestring budget and yet eclipses those made for far more and that offer far less.

Additionally, this is a film for the mature, thinking audience. A film that merits, indeed demands, a modicum of effort from its audience and yet amply rewards those willing to give it.

It packs a real punch and deserves to be seen by the widest possible audience. Hats off to the film makers for their courage, commitment and sheer talent and here's to their next offering.
