A beautiful film about love and friendship.
18 April 2011 | by (Isle of Wight, UK) – See all my reviews

This extraordinary film about the bonds of friendship hits you right in the heart. When 15 year old Robbie is hospitalised with a terminal illness, his final wish is to lose his virginity before he dies. Best mate Ziggy is charged with sorting out 'who' and 'how'.

This could easily have deteriorated into crude and insensitive titillation, but director Bruce Webb expertly navigates the fine line between humour and tragedy, taking us on a journey that will move you to tears one minute and laughter the next.

The two young leads deliver powerful and very believable performances in a film that manages to entertain, move and leave you feeling warm inside. Highly recommended.
