A substantial and memorable film,
This review is from: Glorious 39 [Blu-ray]  [US Import] (Blu-ray)
It's a Stephen Poliakoff film, so expect a slow-burner that is as much about memory and identity as it is about anything 'factual'/historical.
Stick with it and you have a satisfying, if, in the end, slightly sentimental story.
Not one for the Friday/Saturday night multiplex crowd or for girly Doctor Who fans drawn to the film by the appearance of David Tennant.
Overall, a film that should have been promoted better and more prominently scheduled on first transmission by its co-investor, the BBC; a film that deserves a better reputation than it has.
