A tremendous debut and a name to watch out for.
22 February 2001 | by See all my reviews

I didn't know a whole lot about this film when I saw it at a Leicester Square Cinema, only that the scriptwriter Tim Clague had picked up the prestigious Jerwood Prize.

It appeared before Practical Magic and frankly I know which film I would watch again out of the two.

This film is a funny but tender snapshot of a day in the life of a small boy relocated from Liverpool to the South Coast.

The script is warm and human and I've yet to see another film that can through so few words accurately depict the naturalness of youth.

Hopefully we'll see far more of Tim and his work in the future, I personally would like to see how his dialogue could expand to a feature length piece. The UK film industry looks in good shape with this type of talent ready to surface.
