A comedy based on the successful stage play Weekend Breaks by John Godber. Written by Nick Lane

A wonderfully real film that had everyone laughing
28 July 2018 | by bearlovesthemoonSee all my reviews

I was lucky enough to see one of the earlier screenings of the film. I loved it and by the audiences reaction I was far from the only one! It's laugh out loud funny, but also poignant both from the situation the character has got himself into and the common family issues it portrays. I'm bored by so many films as I can't connect to the characters or the storyline. This one I loved.
