Storyline

ingenious
13 April 1999 | by See all my reviews

Two years before he made a big splash with the comedy "The Full Monty", Peter Cattaneo directed this rivetting feature about teenage angst, friendship and drugs without ever being priggish. A throbbing soundtrack, a tense and dismal atmosphere combined with outstanding performances, especially by Lena Headey and Ian Hart, make "Loved Up", which was highly acclaimed at the Edinburgh Film Festival, a must-see. Definitely not your run-of-the mill tv-film.
