This review is from: Jack Rosenthal at the BBC Collection [DVD] (DVD)
I was not too familiar with the work of Jack Rosenthal, but I had read about this DVD and remembered how much I'd enjoyed Eskimo Day, which had been on TV just before I went to Uni in the 90's and had resonated with me.
I was happy to see it had stood up to the passing time and was as moving and funny as I remembered. The rest of the plays on here were a revelation, in particular Barmitzvah Boy which was my favourite. All of these plays were wonderfully involving, clever, unique and often very funny.
I think it's a shame that television writers don't always get the acclaim that theatre or movie writers do, and I'm looking forward to getting the Jack Rosenthal ITV DVD next. I only wish TV writing was always this good.
