From Kevin McKidd's stunning performance to the exquisitely shot
Edinburgh exteriors, this is one of the most beautiful and evocative
films I've ever seen. Anyone who grew up in Britain during the 1970s
will recognise much of what's up on-screen. McKidd and Jobson have
captured the teenage experience of those years perfectly and reproduce
the entire register of repressed emotions and violent undercurrents
with unswerving accuracy.
Naturally, it's a film about redemption - of sorts - but the tantalising, bitter-sweet promise of love and hope that permeates this film is delivered with a genuine toughness that sets it apart from the usual Brit-flick. File alongside some of the best European imports of recent years ... a wonderful and powerful movie that everyone should see.
