After reading a lot of negative reviews for this film I almost decided not to watch it. Had I not been aware of how many idiots there are on the internet I might have missed out on what turned out to be a flawed yet enjoyable film. All the characters range from pitiable to despicable and this provides the flow of the film and depressing content and although the ending came across as a little too contrived ( I had expected something a little more messy given the lives of the characters) the story for the most part seemed an accurate representation of life and rang true for a gritty realism drama. By no means perfect but well worth a watch. I would give this a 6 but as it possesses elements I have not seen expressed in film before I am going to give it a 7
