Eric the postman is slipping through his own fingersâ€¦ His chaotic family, his wild stepsons, and the cement mixer in the front garden donâ€™t help, but it is Ericâ€™s own secret that drives him to the brink. Can he face Lily, the woman he once loved thirty years ago? Despite outrageous efforts and misplaced goodwill from his football fan mates, Eric continues to sink.
In desperate times it takes a spliff and a special friend from foreign parts to challenge a lost postman to make that journey into the most perilous territory of all â€“ the past. As the Chinese, and one Frenchman, say, â€˜He who is afraid to throw the dice, will never throw a six.â€™
Features the full screenplay, including extra scenes, sixteen pages of colour photographs, plus introductions from Paul Laverty, Ken Loach, Eric Cantona and production notes from the cast and crew.
‘A surprising, beguiling comedy from Ken Loach, who, would you believe it, has made what’s certain to be his most crowd-pleasing and popular film since Kes, 40 years ago.’ – Jason Solomons, Observer
