Sentimental comedy set in a small mining village where the
mines are set to close, a group of band musicians stick together to play in a national competition.
It's a film which reaches out to people from similar
communities as it's target audience. A year later, The Full Monty was released, focusing on another group of people who formed a unit after the closure of an area's big business- it was much
funnier and relied on comedy to engage its audience rather than schmaltz.
