Wah-Wah


This is writer/director Richard E. Grant's semi-autobiographical look at his upbringing in Swaziland. British colonial rule in Swaziland was coming to an end, which meant big adjustments for the whites who enjoyed positions of power and privilege. For the hero, as a young boy, he had to deal with an alcoholic father, who succeeded in driving away both his mother and step-mother. The turbulent times were instrumental in shaping the young man's outlook on life.
