Capital Celluloid 2015 - Day 199: Sat Jul 18

S.W.A.L.K. [aka MELODY] (Hussein, 1971): BFI Southbank,NFT2, 3.50pm

This is part of the London on Film season and also screens on 3rd July. Details here.

BFI Southbank preview:
Oliver! co-stars Wild and Lester were reunited for Hussein and Alan Parker’s engaging, eccentric child’s-eye-view of Lambeth schooldays. Posh Danny (Lester) and urchin Ornshaw (Wild) are inseparable until Danny falls for classmate Melody, and the pre-teen couple decide to marry. This sweet, uplifting love story has a fab soundtrack by the Bee Gees and Crosby, Stills and Nash.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
