Good but I wish I'd seen the play instead.
smart and sometimes toughtful piece about education, society, nostalgia and '80 britain
Watchıng this İ could tell ıt would make a great play, as ıt originally was. The dıalogue ıs dramatıc and poetıc, but it doesn,t relate so well to screen. The TV-like productıon and the varied acting abilities of some of the actors leaves a lot to be desıred.
Thought nicely of it the first time around, but now having read the play and seen the film tens of times, I find every second is perfectly executed, especially in regard to the acting. It's riveting -- especially as a student -- and literally every action and word in the film serves a purpose.
