Reviews
Mine: Funny, but also sad story of the poor, english coal miners. Very well acted.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Yorkshire mine workers eke out a living but find solace as members of an amateur,all-male brass band. They are threatened by the not unrelated factors of (a) the mining pit's possible closure and (b) a young woman invading their territory. Seriocomic drama provides an emotional tour de force for Postlethwaite as dogged bandleader, and also for Tompkinson as his beleaguered son. Those are the real-life musicians--members of the Grimethorpe Colliery Band--on the soundtrack.
