Thought-provoking social drama - a real little "sleeper"
8 November 2001 | by uds3See all my reviews

Billed as a comedy, there is so much more to this film! Peter Hehir plays full-time loser Sid McCall, professional vagrant and alcoholic on the skids. Haydon Samuels is his young son Christopher who lives with him. At the insistence of those who seek to help, child welfare workers are called-in to retrieve the lad from what authorities classify as "inappropriate living conditions." Someone seems to have overlooked the fact that Christopher does not consider his plight as distressing however and with each visit to the home, all the social workers can get in the way of co-operation, is Christopher's stock-standard reply to their questions..."I live with me dad!"

What makes this such outstanding drama (whether you consider it a comedy or not) is the terrific acting. Working from a great script by Peter Finney, the actors give it their all. This is top stuff any way you look at it.

Trivia buffs might be interested to note the cameo appearance by Aussie film director Esben Storm as the blind man!
