In the entertaining tradition of The Full Monty, here's a delightfully funny story about the wild road trip that changes one man's life! Colin (Michael Sheen - Laws of Attraction) is a simple guy who had always meekly settled for the simple things in life. But it's not until his wife Sandra runs off with a friend (Jim Carter - Ella Enchanted) that Colin realizes just how good things might have been. Determined to win her back and jump-start his life, Colin hops on his trusty moped and embarks on a chaotic cross-country journey of discovery that opens his eyes to places he's never seen...and introduces him to people he never expected to meet! Also starring Mark Addy (The Full Monty and Celia Imrie (Bridget Jones's Diary).
Heart being the operative word...
I absolutely adore this simple, wonderful little gem of a film. With its Northern soul, quirky characters, it shines darkly and brightly. We even get a bit of Ruth Jones and James Cordon (can ye spot 'im?) long before Gavin and Stacie brought them fame. The folk-wondrous Kate Rusby lends her sweet voice and writing to the soundtrack, making an appearance as well, but Michael Sheen's portrayal of the lovable and awkward Colin is heavenly; you never stop cheering him on. Lost a bit of faith in humanity? Give this one a go...
