Samuel Irons looks just like his dad!

Dividing Bar

Not the greatest of boy films but still enjoyable although lacking any of Roald Dahl's usual dark side to his stories. The real life boy and father play well against each other. I had never seen Samuel Irons in a film before. This one is almost idyllic with the villain, Robbie Coltrane, hamming up his part as the evil landowner. Good fun and pleasant.

Too much of a cliché to be the greatest of Roald Dahl's books, yet with Jeremy and Sam Irons playing, as in real life, father and son, the tale of the underdog defeating a bullying teacher and a wicked landowner becomes a quite delightful entertainment.
