Flick Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Better than I expected. Really good film about determination and perseverance.

A lovely uplifting film that will have us all Googling to try to work out how much was fact and how much was fiction.

An easy to watch, enjoyable film with a definite feel good factor. There was plenty of humour which our audience certainly appreciated given the frequent loud laughter and although there was one comment afterwards that the acting wasn’t great, it didn’t detract from the enjoyment. It was a fun trip down memory lane and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it as a Flicks Film.
