DIANA COUPLAND - What a star!,
This review is from: Spring And Port Wine [DVD] (DVD)I got this because I love the whole kitchen sink genre of British films. I am as much fascinated with the historical nature of the film as the stories. I wasn't sure what to expect with this but film, but I have to say I loved every minute of it. The story is slight, and the pace is slow, but that only helps to magnify the emotional impact of every line and scene. What really stood out for me was Diana Coupland's acting. She portrayed the wife and mother with such tenderness and love. The hardships of life, the loyalty to neighbours - it was all there. She seemed to portray everyone's Mother. I found it quite emotional. If you can get over James Mason's not terribly convincing Northern accent, then this film is a true British gem.

Do you mean Bolton accent, not northern, as James Mason was from Huddersfield?
