A classic Irish film, this Stephen Frears directed comedy based on the Roddy Doyle novel, is packed with quotable lines, great performances and a sharp script. An infectious comedy that needs to be revisited on a regular basis!
About a Boy- (Film Four Wednesday 21st March 18:55)
Heartwarming comedy drama directed by Chris and Paul Weitz, based on the Nick Hornby book of the same name, this feature works due to a deeper than usual Hugh Grant performance and a funny and charming tale that never over sweetens! Recommended!
The Drop - (Film Four Thursday 22nd March 00:40)
Written by Dennis Lehane and with a cast that boasts the likes of the late great James Gandofini (in his final film role), Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace this crime drama from Academy Award nominated director Michaël R. Roskam was always going to be something a bit special. Excellent!
