Interesting film facts (393 movies items)

"The production, in common with the rest of the British film industry at the time, had severe financial problems. Shooting stopped for several weeks due to lack of funds. Paul Weller was originally offered the role of Dean Swift but turned it down."

"Home - New I like the concept and style of this, but it is incredibly overplayed and as such it loses a lot of it's effectiveness. There's still a lot to like in the film, that opening shot is fantastic, but it's exhausting rather than enthralling. "
