Storyline

Frank is an ex-soldier, haunted by a violent past. He lives alone, drowning his nightmares with alcohol. Christine - smart and successful... on the surface, tackles life as a single working mother by immersing herself in drugs, parties and sex. Lynette, a young rough sleeper watches Christine stumble out of a club whilst she sits in the cold waiting for loose change to fall on her lap; her luck seems to change when she meets Frank who despite his misgivings, offers her a place to stay.

Great British Drama
7 March 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Junkhearts is a gritty tale about finding friendship in the most unlikely places. At first glance it seems like a grim story about drug abuse and homelessness but despite the dark subject matter, the effect of this story is surprisingly uplifting.

Frank, a reclusive ex-soldier meets a young homeless girl called Lynette. As she has nowhere else to go, he agrees to let her stay at his house for a night. But his small gesture of kindness turns out to be a big mistake as Lynette's boyfriend, Danny, appears on the scene and turns Frank's life upside down.

Eddie Marsan, as per usual pulls of a stellar performance as Frank, an ex-soldier suffering from post traumatic stress disorder. I was also delighted to discover Candese Reid (watch this space), who plays a young runaway from Nottingham.

A great contemporary British drama and a must-watch for any Marsan fans.
