Going to see Philadelphia Here I Come

Going to see Philadelphia Here I Come. It was on film. We were studying it as part of A level English. It must have been 1982 or 1983. The use of two actors to play the part of Gar, private and public, is a memory I’ve never forgotten. Those moments with his father, when he says little but rages inside his own head.
