“Not sure what film Dodgy-Milk was watching, but it wasnu0026#39;t the same film as me. Maybe something like u0026quot;War Horseu0026quot; would be more to their taste…u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThis is a gritty character study about hopes u0026amp; dreams, manipulation, deceipt, selfishness, betrayal but ultimately love, albeit it a little unorthodox. It is u0026quot;looselyu0026quot; (and I mean very loosely) based on Stienbecku0026#39;s u0026quot;Of Mice and Menu0026quot; and if youu0026#39;re familiar with the book youu0026#39;ll get it but itu0026#39;s used more as an idea for the film, rather than a screenplay.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI thoroughly enjoyed it, I thought the main performances from Steven Graham, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Maxine Peake were excellent with strong support performances from the other members of the cast particularly David Ou0026#39;Hara who is in menacing form. Throughout the film, itu0026#39;s funny, uncomfortable, tender and shocking in equal measure…u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIt is a very u0026quot;Britishu0026quot; film and if youu0026#39;re expecting a u0026quot;Hollywoodu0026quot; blockbuster because youu0026#39;ve seen Graham as Al Capone in the brilliant Boardwalk Empire, this might not be the film for you.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eItu0026#39;s a good 8/10 from me and I would definitely recommend to anyone who likes u0026quot;properu0026quot; films…”
