Common People Review

Image for Common People

The disappearance of Princess Parroty somewhere on Tooting Common sets in train six interlocking stories involving a homeless man, a troop of cub scouts and a clutch of ordinary Londoners.

★★★★★

Following events on a London common from the perspective of an escaped parrot, this may not be the most polished picture. But it captures the location ambience, while the earnestly played vignettes celebrate everyday decency and community spirit.

A folksy but charming celebration of communal life.
