    I liked this allotment-based film and would definitely encourage fellow plot holders to watch it!

    Heart warming hidden gem. A nice lazy Sunday afternoon film with some great British acting talent.

    Charming little movie. I enjoyed it very much and it reminded me of some folk I know. Now I want a plot too.

    A good light-hearted comedy-with-a-message focussing on racial tensions in the UK under the guise of an allotment plot scheme in London. The humour is quick and the characters are amusingly recognisable. A small, independent piece but well worth looking up.

    A really good film, far better than I thought it would be! Comical, serious and a good all rounder. Definitely one to recommend! Enjoy!

    Strong performances and likable characters - says it all, a little scant of the laughs for a comedy (it feels like it should have been funnier).

    A wonderful look look into the operations of the human condition

    Pretty dull movie set entirely on an allotment, consisting of boring characters, boring storyline and uninspiring dialogue. I'd rather set up a deck chair and watch potatoes grow

    Dismal attempt at Britcom with stilted dialogue and script. Benedict Wong's superb turn, which looks like it has wandered in from a much better film, as a recently bereaved immigrant with two children in tow is just about its only saving grace.

    Loved it!!!!! Based on research of real life stories from refugee families and mixed with the strange world of allotment owners I think this film educates on some of the issues of immigration and explores prejudice in a really accessible non threatening way. Bravo!
