redemption? oops, spoiler?
4 January 2008 | by Bullus-1See all my reviews

This is an astonishingly beautiful movie about the love of an old White British Granddad for his young Afro British Granddaughter and what he will do to make sure he keeps her safe. That's all I wanted to say but.. Hey, then you have to ask yourself: How do those Brits craft such splendid stories? I mean listen to those accents! Who could write this stuff? The old boy gets a chance to redeem himself after failing his original daughter, and now he gets a second chance to give it a go. OK never mind about plot spoiler thingies, just look at the wonderful human interaction between these first class actors in what is after all supposed to be nothing more than a humdrum British TV movie. Would that we could all aspire to such drama.
