Although James Cameron’s mega-budget Hollywood behemoth Avatar has been dominating column inches over recent weeks, the rest of 2010 is shaping up to be a memorable one for films on this side of the Atlantic. With the likes of An Education and A Single Man dominating awards ceremonies, and films like Philip Ridley’s Heartless on the horizon, it’s easy to feel upbeat about the current state of British cinema.
