Goofs

When the Earl of Essex is on fire, the fire brigade arrive but there is already a fireman standing outside as the fire engine pulls to a stop. The sirens are heard in the distance, and the previous shot doesn't show any fire engines or any emergency lights that would suggest any emergency vehicles were already on scene. See more »

A very accurate, well made film.
6 June 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The film is an incredibly accurate portrait of that kind of environment. It wasn't two-dimensional in that the characters weren't just purely evil – the good in them also showed. I've met all those characters in the course of my work. The little boys terrorised into joining the criminal network are just so real. It demonstrated what I keep telling people: don't say a child chooses to join a gang; there is no choice. The cycle of brutalisation, with kids brutalising kids, the girl fights, all of it is so accurate.

I want to get a copy of this film and deliver it to the prime minister and say: "This is another bit of your country that you don't talk about, you don't see, but nevertheless, large numbers of children and young people are trapped in this life." I've already spoken to an MP. I want to organise a showing in parliament. I'm going to call Plan B's people and see if they'll make it happen. For the past 16 years I've been trying to describe what these kids' lives are like. It's very difficult for people to visualise the way they live.
