It is more then two friends fighting over one girl!
16 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have not wrote a review for a long time. For some reason I felt like I needed to on this one. It's a pretty simple story about two best friends that like one girl. One of the friends Rupert Grint who plays Malachy comes from like the I would not say rich neighborhood. But his family loves him very much and knows he is going to be successful. While on the other hand you have Luke played by Robert Sheehan. Luke lives a different life style then Malachy. His father is a low down drunk and his older brother pretty much takes care of them both until later on in the film.

So you could say Luke is the wild one and Malachy is like the nice guy. Then comes in Michelle played by Kimberley Nixon which Is very beautiful by the way. She sort of leads them both on in a weird way. But if she did not do this then the movie would not work. So these two best friends compete sort of to win the girl over. I think that is what makes the film work the best. The fact that you don't know who is going to get the girl in the end is what really makes everything work.

It is a drama film with great acting by all the lead actors my favorite being Luke. Even though I myself am more like Malachy. The cinematography is pretty good. You will like getting to know these characters and what makes them the way they really are. I am not going to tell you the end of the film you will just have to watch it for yourself. I also like the White messages at the top and all over the screen that appear to let you sort of know what is about to happen in the film. It kept my attention I recommend it to anyone who likes drama.
