Macclesfield Express - - TVWEEK -

Sadie Jones’ best-selling de­but novel is brought bril­liantly to life in this twopart drama, for which she also penned the screen­play. The pro­duc­tion has been di­rected by the ac­claimed Iain Soft­ley, and fea­tures a great cast that in­cludes Ge­orge MacKay, Greg Wise, Nathaniel Parker, Jes­sica Brown Find­lay and Daisy Be­van. The story is set in 1950s Eng­land and fo­cuses on teenager Lewis Aldridge, who has never dealt prop­erly with the grief he suf­fered fol­low­ing the death of his beloved mother.
