Christopher Newby

John Hannah
Bernard Hill

Offers a disarming take on the usual run of celluloid love stories by pairing the oddest of couples: John Hannah's young, gay Harry... and Bernard Hill's slightly shady Flint. There's quirky humour aplenty here, a high quotient of the unexpected, and a gleeful eye for the absurd as the film quizzically picks its way towards the triumph of their affections...

"Newby's film displays a delight in consistently trumping your expectations. Working magic on limited resources, it's another step forward for a talented young director." Time Out.
