Williams Movie - must see

Just got back from the cinema. It's incredible. Deserves an Oscar.

Absolutely riveting, incredibly well crafted story woven around family life before and after Franks crash. You can watch this as a very informed fan or someone who knows nothing about motorsport.

It is just incredible. Emotive, shattering, humour, drive, passion. So well put together, and it shows a complete family dynamic.

Order the DVD, see it in the cinema. Do not miss it.

I saw the movie on Tuesday also and I was really excited to see it and I really wanted to love it.

But to be completely honest I thought it was just a tad bit boring. There's a couple of moments that bring tears to your eyes, and a couple of bits of old footage of dead people in burnt out cars that shock you but overall its just a bit MEH!! I spoke to a couple of people after the film had finished and they thought exactly the same so it wasn't just me who was getting bored by it.

If you want to see it I wouldn't recommend spending money going to see it in a cinema, wait until it comes out on blu-ray or a streaming service.

Does it suck or is it good (Sm56)

The dead people in burnt out cars part sounds interesting.

It's brilliant. It is not a film about F1 but it is a film about people. So if you go expecting to see lots of car action, you won't.

Claire Williams opens up in a way you will not see anywhere else and the final scene is heartbreaking.

You can read my review here if you are interested.

I wish I could get access to it in Australia but I can't even get to it through the Australian ITunes store.

I find it difficult to believe that with the available technologies we cannot simply release content to the world. There is a madness going on somewhere which will soon be gone. In the interim we are in no mans land with this ridiculous situation.

The world is very strange. I guess the people that run it (all of us) are simply incompetent @#$%&.

Williams wants to maximize their profit and just want paying customers to see their movie. It's not on newsgroups nor is there a good torrent available.
So until the release will be available worldwide on Google Play or iTunes, it will be impossible for the most of us to see it.

Its a surprisingly intimate family portrait. It doesn't paint Sir Frank as a hero, but rather just as he is. Loved it.

Return it. Amazon is very friendly with returns.

It's in a few platforms, including Google Play & iTunes: [williamsfilm.com] I bought it (from Amazon UK to Spain) in BluRay. I think, they will release it in Netflix, Amazon, etc.. in a few weeks. They would be silly if not!

I really loved it. I've read 'A different kind of life' (the very, very, very tough Ginny's book) this summer and also I've readed a few biographics of Sir Frank but this film surprised me! It's well balanced, I really liked the pure racing bits (include a few of recent footage) and it discovers a few details of private-public life of the family that I didn't know (maybe because the book is from 1991). It's also very well produced, not the 'before-Senna' kind of stuff that the racing nerds were used to watch.

TLDR: if you're here reading this at the documentary film's topic in a Williams forum... oh, kid, go for it.

iTunes and Play don't offer the movie outside of the UK.

And those region codes, it is old fashioned but boy it does work wonders.

Thanks Stuart but yes I am stuck as the region will stop me from using a DVD from overseas.

Ouch! I thought it was a global platform. Nonsense then.
