A Thought Provoking, Moving Story... That Every Parent Should See
22 January 2012 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Me, i'm 45.. young for my age in mind yet insightful to life, the universe and anything you may wish to add.

I was pointed in the direction of this movie buy a friend of mine who laid the table with the trailer.. the trailer says deep..heavy..sad, and in parts the film is that... however.. This film isn't about plots or twists or acting, although i thought the parts played by all were believable... I think to some degree we measure believability of the role by how drawn we are into the story and our own experiences of real people and situations... growing up on a council estate say.. as opposed to a largely sheltered "middle class" community, will throw you into situations that others may consider unbelievable but are nonetheless true. This story rings true across many a household... in part. don't try and disassemble this story like many reviewers do, a film is meant to take you on a journey.. a journey of emotions and thoughts, if a film achieves that... then the film is good...regardless of the "holes in plot" etc.. who cares... you see.. a reviewer tends to make the mistake of over analyzing a film rather than remembering its to take the person on the journey i mentioned earlier...if u want a more complete reality.. leave films alone and watch documentaries....

there are no glaringly obvious holes, there is no poor acting or bad scripts..it will touch you, maybe move you.. it drew a tear.. i could relate to things that were unfolding.. in places.. as i'm sure you will when you see it. There is a message in the movie..and to be quite honest its a very poignant message... watch it.. you'll like it, but it has that thing Schindler's List has... where its a good film but it feels wrong saying its good..if you know what i mean. Very worth the watch...ignore the over critical analytical yuppie reviews... its a film... a good film.
