Dir: Mike Leigh
Starring: Sally Hawkins and Eddie Marsan
A young teacher remains eternally cheerful despite everything that life throws at her
There are two railway shots in this brilliant comedy drama. The first scene appears when the credits are rolling and shows Sally Hawkins cycling across Blackfriars Bridge. A couple of Class 319 EMUs cross the railway bridge behind her, one in Thameslink blue and white and the other in the short-lived silver and blue scheme. Later in the film there is an elevated view of East London and a formation of Docklands Light Railway units is crossing the landscape close to East India Dock.
