Review
The hugely popular and award winning drama that introduced the world to the genius of Dennis Potter. Arthur Parker is a sheet music salesman in 1930s Britain, frustrated by both his wife and his job, but Arthur has ambitions, which allied to his utter lack of common decency and morality have more hope than most of achieving some kind of fruition. Pennies from Heaven is a remarkable tale, blending harsh reality and whimsical fantasy with hypnotic skill, while the central performance by Bob Hoskins is one of his best.
