Some of the reviews of this film are quite scathing. It is no Oscar winner, but an enjoyable film nonetheless. How anyone could not feel sorry for poor old Eddie is beyond me. The kid just wants something to do and needs direction. I applaud his dreams and his hopes as it is plain he has bugger all chance of achieving anything at all. To be doomed at such a young age is a waste, yet there are many working class boys in the same situation. He just needed someone sane and decent to give him a hand.
Sooooo...it's an entertaining flick, depressing and flat, and you need to be a bit of an idealist and romantic to enjoy films like this.
