A marvelously gritty urban drama that outranks much of the traditional British fare.
11 February 2002 | by (Hull, England) – See all my reviews



Charlie's (Johnny Lee Miller) penchant for breaking in, but yet not stealing from places, is rewarded with time inside. Weathering the temptations and taunting of inmates and officers Charlie strives to make good on the outside. A chance encounter with a Kings Cross prostitute Myra (Sarah-Jane Potts) establishes a tender and absorbing romance between the two with some promise of security and salvation, that is, until pimp Charlie decides to call a halt to the proceedings.

Brilliantly shot and acted, the film premiered on British television in 1994 as part of a season of specifically commissioned films. The film's overwhelming sense of loss and struggle draws the viewer into the gritty underworld of vice and drugs often romanticised and glamorised by similar fare. However, Madden does not pull away from the desperation of his characters and nor does he revel in it. At times touching and poignant and others shockingly brutal the film is a highly recommended gem that deserves to be viewed.
