This movie is just outstanding. A hidden gem without a doubt, perhaps it's because I went in with low expectations but this is one of the best movies I've seen this year (yes I know it was made in 08 but I only watched it this year lol).
The acting is strong and the character development equally as strong. The story itself is very well scripted as is the dialogue. I haven't been moved by a movie this much in a long time.
The acting especially by the young boy (Arron Fuller), I was very surprised by the quality of his acting. Very engrossing to watch, highly entertaining.
Like another reviewer mentioned, this isn't for the yanks. It wasn't made with mainstream America in mind, but I don't see why it should be. As far as I'm aware movies don't all have to adhere to the same rules and be completely americanised.
Great movie and definitely worth a watch.
