This review is from: Neville's Island [DVD]   (DVD)
I didn't know what to expect from this film as the cast list had my hopes sky high to begin with, and I was concerned it wouldn't live up to it. WRONG!! This film is pure magic from start to finish, with sterling performances and beautiful little touches from a tight, perfectly selected cast. The characters are finely drawn, heartbreakingly real and, although Timothy Spall gets all the best lines, equally important. There is no character, no moment, no speech, not so much as a sideways glance, that is not absolutely necessary and perfectly executed. I would recommend this to anyone with an ounce of sensibility and an appreciation for a fine performance.
