For the love of the herd….

Any movie exploring friendship and survival against the odds will tug away at our heart strings – And Then Came the Nightjars doesn’t disappoint.

The improbable friendship between a Devon farmer and the vet who’s assigned to cull his precious herd is central to the story, set against the backdrop of the 2001 foot-and-mouth outbreak and government attempts to control the disease.

I’ve watched a preview, and just like the stage play it’s based on I reckon this movie’s a sure-fire hit. Well worth a viewing. On release in UK cinemas from September 1st.

Starring Nigel Hastings & David Fielder
