Although the screenplay is a bit hard to follow at times – maybe it overreaches – it is certainly fresh and deserves to be seen. It should stand up to another viewing which in itself is some achievement.
The period's requirements are catered for very well. The screenplay is interesting thanks in no small way to the liquorice allsorts lead character and while not zipping along it keeps moving through some good editing. The casting is spot on.
It is a good promotion for a skillful & physically demanding sport. A sport that also produces something positive as an end result (a shorn sheep). Refreshingly there is nothing pretentious about these ladies & they are good company throughout the film.
