Better than IMDb's current 4.7 user rating.
1 June 2013 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Currently, this film has a score under 5. That's the kind of rating which would turn me off trying it, and I think it deserves better than that.

This is a well-observed working class drama with fine performances across the board. There aren't many films treating this kind of subject matter and this one doesn't shy away from making some unconventional story choices. Not perfect, but I saw it about two years ago and it has somehow stuck in my mind

Probably suits an older audience but certainly not the stinker the IMDb user rating suggests. The New Zealand Herald gave it 3.5/5, and that seems fairer. There are no links to external reviews here but you can find a few if you care to look, and they will do more justice than my limited powers of description.

I've scored it the maximum just to lift the average a little.
