  • Critic Reviews
    "Douglas' stark and sublime trio of autobiographical dramas, largely set in an impoverished post-war Scottish mining village, retain the extraordinary visual and emotional power they emanated in the cinema."
    Sight and Sound

    "Against the brutal, poverty-ridden setting of his Scottish post-war upbringing, Douglas created one of the great cinematic evocations of childhood, thank in no small part to the astonishing performance of Stephen Archibald as Jamie."
