Stunning
21 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tomlinson plays a life he knows about in a world he understands - factual frightening and gripping - a defining performance and one which will stay with me.

The day to day story of dockers let down by government and unions kept together only by solidarity and a sense of justice. The inevitable subversion of the process only adds to the poignancy of the story. A tale told in the tradition of boys from the black stuff and look back in anger with a performance to match. Tomlinson leads in a dark realistic manner remaining at all times believable and sympathetic.

A wonderful telling of a dark and terrible story.
