London to Brighton

A great social realist film, and perhaps also noteworthy for centring on female protagonists (social realism is also frequently guilty of failing the Bechdel Test!), you can currently catch this on iPlayer:

Online views, including the Amazon user reviews, are mainly v positive. I concur that its an excellent film with a gripping narrative, strong use of a non-linear device (flashbacks) and engages the audience well with the protagonists, but I also think the cinematography is at best unexceptional, with the degree of camera movement quite distracting at times. How easy would it be market this to a US audience, never mind a UK audience?!
