Melody DVD

Melody DVD
Daniel (Mark Lester, Oliver) and Ornshaw (Jack Wilde, Oliver), two mischievous schoolboys attending a south London comprehensive, strike up a trusting friendship despite their vastly different social backgrounds. But when Daniel falls head over heels in love with fellow pupil Melody, Ornshaw resents being neglected. Not only is their friendship compromised, but the dull, grumpy adult world that surrounds them is about to be turned upside down when ten-year-olds Daniel and Melody announce their plans to get married. Brilliantly and poignantly capturing the world of pre-adolescent, Melody revels in the joys of youthful rebellion. Since its original release in 1971 it has gained an immense, international cult following and become one of British cinemas most cherished films. Not only was it Alan Parker's (The Commitments, Bugsy Malone) first screenplay, it was also David Puttnam's (Chariots Of Fire, The Killing Fields) debut as a feature film producer. Melody also features a fantastic, unforgettable soundtrack from the Bee Gees and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young.
