    I was introduced to the soundtrack long before the film. I love Mark Knopfler. 7 years 11 months ago

    Ha that comment about the world you want to be is quite funny to me, only because I grew up near where it was filmed. Shame a similar thing is happening there, except it Donald Trump and a golf course and he's not going to make it into a research centre :( 6 years 7 months ago

    This film and 'Waking Ned Devine' have something in common. Both are about small towns and people in them. Sometimes you want films to show you a world that is less like the one you live in and more like the one you want it to be - this is one of them. 8 years 10 months ago
