I moved around in foster homes until I was about sixteen.
Met my best mate there, Jamie, when we were twelve. Erm yeah, it was nice, we just went around as a pair.
Fucking hell. What was it like?
Being "in care".
It was fine. I mean, I wasn't abused or anything.
Shame, you should've got a refund. Do they know about you?

This is a love story. It is not cheesy. It is not fake. It is love, plain and simple. Let go of your prejudices and bias and watch the film.
The IMDb summary of the film does it no justice whatsoever. This piece of art depicted the most genuine and sincere definition of love in any motion picture that I have seen. Besides the fact that the script was well-written, the actors carried the story to fruition in their slightest of gestures, glances, and articulations. You really fall in love with Glen and Russell and want them to be with each other. There are parts where you'll laugh, parts where you might tear up, and parts where you might wonder if you've ever felt what these characters feel for each other. There are some wonderful scenes cinematically as well. The ending is satisfying and resonant of real life, which is a nice change of pace when compared to other love stories. This is the movie that you should see, and I hope you will.
