What are people saying?

  • Richmond Hill's rating of the film The Falklands Play

    A powerfully simple piece of television that in focusing on decision-making and conversation - invariably in mid-shot - turns budgetary limitations to the play’s advantage, creating real fire and crackle from words alone. Words of course spoken by an expert cast who represent the spirit (or lack of) of the people involved not just attempts at vocal and visual impressions. Taut, tight and riveting.
