Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Mixed reception from some who had seen the live version. Rather a long film which would benefit from an interval. Music was great and some tissues were required!

A long film; we had two breaks after aprox 47 then another 43 mins

As you might expect, a brilliant film on all levels. Highly recommended. Those who have seen the stage play said they now fully understood it!
