We Think the World of You


Time Out says

JR Ackerley's wonderfully moving novel wouldn't work without the central relationship between an ageing lonely gay and his Alsatian. Colin Gregg hasn't solved that one - how can you on screen? - and concentrates elsewhere, losing the point in a plethora of Brit caricatures, Liz Smith prominent among them. Bates does his over-familiar mannered queen in melancholy circs, effectively shafting any chance of sympathy, and only Oldman as his unreliable lover gives any sense of layered life, earning a pang as the trap snaps shut upon his prospects.
