A few days in from our launch to tackle IMDB - the movie ratings giant that the industry uses as a barometer of public taste and we're off to a great start. We now have over 230 reviews and our rating stands at 8.3 which is still within the top 100 films of all time.
Now we realise our rating will inevitably decrease over time. The more ratings we get and the broader our audience becomes the more likely it is that our aggregate will move downwards as people with broader tastes encounter the film, but there's a greater principle at play and that is to try and demonstrate to IMDB - and by proxy - the wider industry that there is an audience appetite for small character-led films and that are people drawn not just to actors and established names, they're also drawn to stories.
And for everyone who is helping us to spread the word and help raise our profile we're extremely grateful. It's an enormous uphill struggle to get 25,000 ratings for such a small film but if we don't try, then we can never succeed.
