I find myself in a wonderful position. This is the second acceptance speech I've given in the last week and that's unbelievable. I'll try not repeat the first speech I made with the exception of thanking Anne Sandoe for her support during, not only during the making of this film, but for her support during my "career change," so it was.
When I was a lad in Birmingham, England, my mother used to deliberately take me out of school to go and see a picture with her on a Wednesday afternoon. And I think it was more for company than foresight, but I'd like to say hello to my mother back in England and my sister Mary. And briefly, I'd like to say thanks to Telefilm, Michael Mills for getting the film down here, and the Academy. Thank you.
