What are people saying?

  • Richmond Hill's rating of the film Our Day Out

    An amiably realised if diffuse sugared pill for something Russell doesn’t articulate clearly enough, although ‘education’ alone will apparently open doors for this group of children. The epiphany towards liberalism enjoyed by the ‘right-wing’ teacher is not matched by his more ‘left-wing’ colleague, with her offering no comment on the class’s attempted theft. The ‘truth’ probably lies somewhere between the two poles.
