The transcripts of the official inquiry into the culture, practices and ethics of the press. More…

In relation to your career, everybody, of course, probably knows all about your career, but you made it big, if I can so describe it, with a film in 1994, "Four Weddings and a Funeral", but although you don't say so yourself, you did rather well, I think, with another film which some of us enjoyed in 1987 called "Maurice", so it wasn't as if it's a one-off. You career then took off thereafter.

You say in your statement that following the success of "Four Weddings and a Funeral" in 1994, initially the press comment was favourable and then it plummeted. Can you tell us a bit about the favourable part, the good part, if we can so describe it, in your own words, please?
