This is a surprisingly good movie
2 July 2002 | by (Aptos CA) – See all my reviews

In this under-rated film Neil Jordan has created a very real portrait of how some teen-agers actually think and feel. The treatment of such a touchy subject as incest handled with a deft enough touch to almost make it believable.Some editing to cut redundant scenes would have made this a truly great movie. While watching Niall Byrne it was hard not to think of look alike Australian tennis player, Leyton Hewitt.
