Really well done - The Mission review by John M from Romsey

Spoiler Alert
21/04/2021

We have enjoyed the music from this for some time and have never seen the film until now. As a portrayal of a true historical event this was really well done, possibly because real Indian people from the forest played many key parts in the film.

Excellent and well worth seeing
