The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill But Came Down a Mountain
First screened in May 2015
Director: Christopher Monger. Cast: Hugh Grant, Ian McNeice, Colm Meaney, Tara FitzGerald, Ian Hart, Kenneth Griffith, Robert Pugh, Dafydd Wyn Roberts, Tudor Vaughan, Hugh Vaughan, Lisa Palfrey. Screenplay: Christopher Monger (based on a story by Ifor David Monger).

Twitter Capsule: A movie that went up a molehill and managed about one-third of a monty.

VOR:   Sweet enough, but totally frivolous, gratuitous tone is only halted by ungainly stabs at sorrow or deep feeling, principally via Ian Hart's woeful shellshock victim. Grant far from his peak.
