Quotes from previous audience members:

“Love, sexual tension, betrayal, abandonment, anger, sadness all simmering under the façade of British politeness.”

“I really believe this film will encourage greater communication and encourage acceptance, reduce isolation and enhance quality of life for older lesbians and gay men in rural communities.”

“Actually a wider representation of the community’s cultural and societal norms and values. It will allow citizens who see the film to think reflectively on the ways their own lives are structured and impacted by the environment in which they live. It may also provoke a critical evaluation of their own and their community’s views on diversity.”

“What stood out for me in the film was simply the fact that rarely does one get the chance of seeing a love affair between two men portrayed on screen credibly and realistically, not to say very movingly.”
