Great British Comedy

A really quaint comedy. Brett Goldstein is so watchable. I recently saw him doing stand up in London and he was excellent so was really pleased to see he had the lead in a film.

A heads up for those wanting a marvel/dc actioner this is not it.

The characters, even those with one lines are just brilliant and there is a real warmth and feeling to the film. It reminded me in essence of Hunt for the Wilderpeople. A comedy that doesn't try too hard for laughs and as such achieves even more authentic ones.

Leaves you with a smile on your face.

I just can't believe this didn't get more attention or a wider initial release.

Strangely enough Brett was in "Derek" on the BBC and this does have a similar balance of humour, sentimentality (and I mean that in a positive way) and good natural acting.

Well done
