Actress Rebecca Front (The Thick of It,
Grandma's House, Lewis) and comedian and writer David Schneider
have teamed up to review one of the hottest movies on the block,
'Father's Day', made for Prostate
Cancer UK and starring Ray Winstone, John Simm, Tamzin Outhwaite,
Charles Dance and Neil Stuke.
Comedy icons, Rebecca and David have cast a
cultured eye to give a classic review
of the film described by Sunday Times Arts Editor Richard
Brooks as: "A mini-drama with a twist - and offers a storyline
better than much of Hollywood."
The revolutionary Father's Day film was
first seen on ITV4 and brought the most ever visitors to Prostate
Cancer UK's website. Whilst Prostate Cancer UK's specialist nurses
manning the helpline saw an increased number of people contacting
them by nearly 500%.
"This is proof, if any were needed, that
this film has connected with the men Prostate Cancer UK is trying
to reach," said long-time Prostate Cancer UK supporter David
Schneider. "Rebecca and I hope that our comedy will help keep this
momentum going so as many men as possible watch Father's Day and
ultimately find out more about prostate cancer and who is at
Prostate Cancer UK hopes to expand the
audience for Father's Day in the coming weeks to raise further
awareness of a disease that is underfunded and poorly understood.
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in men in the
UK, with over 40,000 diagnosed with the disease every year.
