Some people keep allotments because they like the taste of fresh vegetables. Some go there for the company. Some of them are looking for love. Some of them are looking for the perfect manure. Some go there to escape from their marriages. One of them is there to escape from something much, much worse.
A comedy with the price of being British. Not a film to be watched with a 6 pack on Friday night. This is about recovery from depression, the misery of deportation, loneliness and being bullied by an oppressive father. All the characters are played so well that it made me optimistic about the British film industry. Some risible moments but no rib-ticklers.
