Marvellous – BBC iPlayer- Film

The title of this film sums up my overall feeling after watching.

It’s been a long time since a movie made me glow with happiness throughout. The audience are taken on an adventure via the biographical, true story of Neil Baldwin, a man with additional needs and limitless dreams who lives the most extraordinary life while bringing positivity, perspective and cheer to everyone he encounters. Toby Jones justifies his reputation as one of Britain’s most underrated actors in his portrayal.

I had to work extremely hard not to shed a tears of both sorrow and laughter on numerous occasions during the 90 minutes. A man that had an eclectic mix of careers including circus act to kit man at Stoke City, his carefree approach to life and the devotion to his friends is a lesson to everyone.

A triumph of human spirit; one of the most inspiring things you’ll ever watch and a welcome dose of optimism during these uncertain times. GO AND FIND IT NOW!
