What are people saying?

  • Richmond Hill's rating of the film Sunset Across the Bay

    A quietly affecting study in melancholy and loss. You know where the story will terminate but it's written with such perception and compassion that it reveals, in miniature, many truths of life and indeed death. British television once had the opportunity to look into its society with dramas such as this, whereas now an obsession with the anterior and crass escapism dominates, denying self-reflection in the process.
