Following the death of her husband, 10-year-old Paul's mother Mel comes to rely on an old friend, Lenny, who is also a pimp and dealer. Soon Paul must take care of both his mother and his younger brother. When Mel's friend and fellow user dies, Paul must confront the fear that has been gathering in the pit of his stomach: having lost his father, his mother too may abandon him. Even with his limitations as a child, he takes action to stop this from happening. Written by Sujit R. Varma

Normally depressed by these
17 November 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Normally I am depressed by these kind of movies. There is a place for a look at the worst side of life but I don't usually seek them out for entertainment. However the performances in this are uniformly excellent and I watched it in spite of my prejudices. Particular praise goes out to Molly Parker and David Wenham, both from other parts of the world, but playing Londoners convincingly. Paul, wonderfully played by Harry Eden, is a fully fleshed character and Eden is unusually good for a child actor who, in effect, is carrying the whole movie, as he is in practically every scene. If anyone needs to see the misery that drugs cause they could do little better than watch this film.
