A great film - finally i've found it...
6 April 2006 | by gaz-65See all my reviews

I've been trying to trace this film for soooo long, ever since seeing it on TV years ago. I was blown away. It was one of those nothing-on-TV-late-at-night-flicking-through-the-channels moments, when i came across this film after a few minutes of it starting. Thinking there was nothing else on, and not holding out much hope of a decent film, i watched it anyway and was hooked. Honestly, what a great film and what a masterful performance by Christopher Ecclestone. The delicate subject matter was dealt with extremely well, stripping away the usual prejudices surrounding mental disability, with a man coming to terms with the reality of his roots and his struggle to overcome his own prejudice. It is extremely well filmed, directed and acted - I would wholly recommend anyone to give this a go.
