I first watched this twenty odd years back when I was thirteen and it has stayed with me since. I've eagerly kept me eye out for repeats or video/DVD release and finally my patience has paid off.
Unbelievably it is even better than I remember it and, being at a different stage in life, I relate to it in a different way. It is powerful, touching, uplifting and tragic. It is also interesting to watch the fine acting of David Morrissey at such a young age. A must see.
