    This is an outstanding movie with richly developed characters that will really capture you.  Also great to have a story that centers around a different kind of work rather than a typical business based story

    Entertaining way to teach history

    This charming story is a sly way to teach quite a bit about some recent history of a community without being obvious that it is teaching you anything at all. The characters are interesting and you find yourself wanting to see what they will all do next and before you know it, their history becomes something you care about as well. You go into it without knowing that any such place or the Welsh exist at all and through the course of the storytelling, you find that it has made you want to go there yourself.
