    Wonderful film. Pity that it seems to be what some Care Homes and the NHS seem to be aiming at replicating in some hospitals.

    Brilliant film with superb acting. Some care homes are awful, and some are really good, like the one my mother's in, but it does bring it home to you that some things need improving. Food for thought..

    Impossible to get the end of the film!! Why should anyone bother to try to watch 5 on demand if you can't supply a better service? You've lost me for one.
