#1/ Tuesday 23 June, 2009 / 14:29 GMTThis is an amazing film that I'm glad was recommended to me by a fellow press member and urge everyone to see who can.
It's just a shame it is now more associated with Ken Loach's ill-judged meddling and the whole related political debacle than being able to stand simply on it's own merits.
#2 / Tuesday 23 June, 2009 / 22:11 GMTThat'll be me Stuart! Totally agree, and I've been writing about this for some time, the film has nothing to do with the politics and it's being harshly pre-judged by people who would be the first to complain if the tables were turned. Shame, this is a gorgeous film.
