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.
