Having seen this at a festival recently I can't express how much of an emotional experience those two hours were. Based on true events, the story sucks you straight in from the very start. With great direction and an astonishing performance by the lead actor, it is a film that will live on in my memory for some time to come. An important piece of work, especially considering the key issues it addresses such as crime, homelessness and the unwillingness of society to act on something that could happen to any of us. It's sheer evidence that cinema is a powerful tool in not only raising awareness, but engaging audiences on an experience that could quite literally change their lives.
