What are people saying?

  • Richmond Hill's rating of the film Leeds - United!

    An unusually focuses polemical-drama presented with clarity, force and balance, resulting in an exciting and expansive exploration of unionised labour. Character and environs are sketched vividly. Whilst pay conditions may have notionally improved, what hasn’t is the whole structure of British factory-based work which has largely vanished, and with it the tight camaraderie depicted. Pay-up, society down.
