Our Boy is one helluva good film, a must see.
30 June 1999 | by (Vancouver, Canada) – See all my reviews

A very intense drama that shows just how strong human weakness can be. Ray Winstone plays the happy husband and proud father until 'our boy' goes missing. Then its only one road for him thats down. A great cast with Ray Winstone in particular playing with utter clarity. There is one scene that will rock you, bring the hairs on your neck up and a hankie to your eyes.I have no hesitation in giving this film a ten.

A Brit movie set in London.
