I cannot understand the numptees that have given a low rating to this film - it's quite simply British film making at its best.
What really enhances this for me is the films raw honesty. There's no frills to this and it pictures lower class British life as it is - with a touch of humour too! The cast are (to me) unknown and Chris Beattie who plays the lead role is a cracking actor with a big future I hope.
A movie debut by Geordie legend, Alan Shearer, does not impact on tghe plot line or the viewer enjoyment either.
This is never going to be the best film you ever watch, but I emplore you to obtain a copy and enjoy what I think's a fantastic film!
