Give Them Wings. Film.

Post by theoriginalfatcat » Sun Jul 24, 2022 2:16 pm

I see on the official site that this film was shown at The Vue in Darlington on Saturday 16th.

Did anyone see it? If so, how was it?
A stopped clock is right twice a day.
The Blackwell Meadows clock is wrong all day every day.

The article on the Club site says the Film "is released on all major platforms in the UK on 1st August." Not sure what this means, so where can we view it Amazon Prime, Netflix?

I dunno, it’s not streaming now.

I’d like to see the film - the book is a good read and I’ve bumped into Flipper a few times over the years :thumbup:

"On all major platforms in the UK from the 1st of August"(see above) but I still don't know what this means other than certain cinemas!

'Available to buy/rent on Digital HD from 1st August', so at a guess I would say it would be available to purchase through things like Amazon Prime, Apple TV, Sky Store, etc

Poetic licence was hilarious


I particularly lmao at the there's the stadium moment
clearly the Riverside at Boro with the Tees beside then landing in Blackwell Meadows.

Radio commentary of Gary Coatworths last minute winner 300 miles away at Welling and a character says I'm off to the game now I ain't missing this .. I think he may have been late.

Darlo 30 years ago playing in 2 years agos Puma kit.

All the darlo houses with pvc windows 30 years ago

I hope it was meant to be a comedy
Can you watch farmyard frolics on an S4? :wtf:

Ed Ted Forster John's bullshitting since birth :thumbdown:

Still no zoomcall?????? :lol:

Artistic licence actually.
UPVC windows actually started being popular in the 80s so not totally unreasonable to see some in the film, unless you expect a film done with a limited budget to replace all the windows in view?
Its possible to pick faults even in the most expensive or most popular films made.
Sometimes its best to keep your thoughts to yourself.

Someone correct me if I’m wrong but I believe the budget was 100k so I’m not sure what you’re expecting. Maybe recreate Wellings football ground from 30 years ago? Maybe rebuild Feethams? Also the vast majority watching this film won’t know nor give a toss about Darlington wearing ‘the wrong kits’. It has won 2 independent film awards and has received excellent reviews.

This film isn’t a story about Darlington FC. It’s a story about a man overcoming his challenges who happens to be a massive Darlington fan. I thought it was excellent. Great performances all round but I must say considering she’s from London Katie Sheridan did a good attempt at a Darlington accent, it’s a particularly hard one to replicate.

By the way, does anyone know if the pub Paul and Jane were in was the Foresters at Coatham Mundeville? It looked very familiar!

Sniping is so easy when funding is limited. Skyfall was £150 million plus. Now that's a budget.
