Aro Recommended Grow Your Own


aka: The Allotment
UK 2007, 97 minutes
Dir. Richard Laxton
Genres: Comedy / Independent

Topics: Indigenous & Minority Cultures.


Aroview: Delightful, benevolent comedy sees an eccentric group of British gardeners have their carefree days of tending community plots interrupted by a multi-national mix of asylum seekers taking over one of the allotments.

Aided by a clever, topical script co-written by Frank Cottrell-Boyce (24 HOUR PARTY PEOPLE) and a quality cast of curmudgeons, this can be forgiven for some deja-vu characters and a tendency towards over-ripe pathos, as it sows the seeds of acceptance with sincerity and down to earth charm.
