It is a quirk that makes the British film industry such a magnificent beast at times, for every stunning spectacular that crowds the screen with its location, its effortless pandemonium like glee in producing stunt after stunt and the facility to host the filming of the big box office smash, that occasionally comes a film in which typifies the true spirit of film making, one that does not go down the route enjoyed by the likes of the insipid and distasteful, but is instead a story, a piece of living memory that could happen to any of us.

If a story is worth telling then perhaps it doesn’t matter how much it strays from the actual version of events, however when the truth of a significant moment in time for a person, regardless of the stature or place in the history books, is distorted and warped, it can hardly be a surprise when half the world suddenly believes it to be the truth and legends grow and falsehoods spread.
