Review

Rating: 2 out of 5.

In days of yore, the poor folk of South London flocked to Kent and went hop-picking. But this adventure is no bucolic idyll. Made for the Children's Film Foundation, and starring popular child actor Mandy Miller, this exciting tale offers bullying, theft and a climactic lightning storm. A little piece of British social history from the future director of The Towering Inferno.
