But this is Salford in the North of England, in 1971. Much as George’s English wife, Ella, loves and tries to honour her husband, she also wants her kids to be happy. The children, caught between bell-bottoms and arranged marriages, simply want to be citizens of the modern world.
He was discovered with his first short film Thirty Five Aside which won more than thirty international awards. He directed serveral advertising films.
