Clearly influenced by Waltz with Bashir, the 2008
animated documentary that scrutinised the 1982 Lebanon War,
25 April (Rialto) is a noble attempt to apply a
comparable graphic novel-inspired treatment to the New
Zealand involvement in the Gallipoli campaign.
Family-friendly feel-good sports movies are a bit thin on the
ground right now so it is not surprising that the producers
of Eddie the Eagle (Rialto and Readings) had to cast
their minds back to more innocent times for their story.
