I believe this movie was recently shown at the Lincoln Center/Walter Reade
series on recent British/UK films. They may have details or website, etc.
Unfortuneately, I skipped it, as the other offerings were more enticing.

While not on the subject, I have a ticket i might not be using for the NY
Film Fest showing of "Julien Donkey-Boy" also showing at Lincoln
Center/Walter Reade on Sept. 30 at 6:00.  Anyone?
