A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE FOR A YORKSHIRE LAD
on 9 November 2016
Great piece of 70's Yorkshire/barnsley history depicting real down-to-earth life along with the main character interests of the film, billy and 'Kes'.
If it hadn't been for my school history teacher bringing in a vhs copy to school for us all to watch, I might not have possessed the same heart felt appreciation for this fine piece of movie history. This is one of those films you can see a little bit of yourself (or an awful lot in my case) in the characters, which for me at the time wasn't always fun, but as a survivor of similar and or worse school life situations, I can afford to look back and smile with a sense and sigh of relief.
Extra's are great especially a recent David Bradley video blog reflecting on his own experience.
Very pleased with the Masters of Cinema blu ray release.
