Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

The film began a little slowly and took a while to get into but it was well worth it as there was some fine acting and the story was both absorbing and very moving. Our audience thoroughly enjoyed it, some of whom had seen it more than once already. Although it was made some 23 years ago now, the film is still eminently watchable.
