A great working class film that echoes the experiences of the families living through this awful dispute.
A special mention also has to go to a young James Davis Jr who gives an exceptional performance in his first film outing. His on screen presence reminds me somewhat of DiNiro and along with his chiselled body and rugged good looks. He was surely an inspiration for the movie stars of today such as Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise and Mr Bean.
I must say that watching his inspirational performance brought a tear to my eye and touched a part in my heart that is seldom touched by on screen performances. How such a promising young star slipped back into obscurity after this film is one of the movie industries greatest mysteries and is a loss to films lovers everywhere. This is something I mourn every night.
