Jack To A King was reviewed in WSC 333

icon tvwatch29 September ~ Over the weekend Jack To A King, the documentary about Swansea City’s rise to the Premier League from the brink of non-League, won three awards at the Bafta Cymru ceremony. Marc Evans took home the best factual director award, while the film also received awards for best sound and editing. In WSC 333, November 2014, Huw Richards reviewed the film, suggesting that it “looks terrific, has big-screen production values and vividly recalls familiar scenes and stories”. He goes on to say: “The film-makers found compelling voices. James Thomas, whose goals kept the Swans in the league in 2003, is gently amiable while Leon Britton is engaging, observant and thoughtful.” You can read Huw’s full review here.
