Don Hartley also made it available on iTunes, Google and Amazon video after failing to get any of the mainstream distributers interested (which to me suggests they didn't even have the courtesy to watch any of it). I saw it several years ago at a small screening in Cumbria - loved it. Didn't hear of it again for a long time but now it seems to pop up in conversation occasionally so is gaining some mass.
It's a great film and you can feel the emotion of the writers and those involved in making it happen.
I rarely watch a whole film (I get bored quickly watching....never had an idiot box so never got used to sitting on a sofa watching one?)...this one is an exception.
Easy to watch, good story, real characters and scenery can't be faulted.
