  • Richmond Hill's rating of the film Closing Numbers

    A quietly absorbing foray into AIDS-politicking with no great social message apart from forgiveness and acceptance, and you can't ask for more than that. One of the lesser known Film on 4 entries, this dampens the then-current hysteria with a tenderness and compassion. A lovely sensitive performance from Asher in a film that deserved a larger audience than British domestic television.
