Excellent, raw and gutsy realism beyond doubt, as is life
8 October 2005 | by allan-oliver2See all my reviews

Such a beautifully made film, raw and gutsy. The strength of the film lies within the actors, writers and directors portrayal of the characters. This is life or at least a part of it as seen from the perspective of the third person, a keyhole glimpse into a small part of life of a young mother. The film is so real it is unnervingly real. I'm not going to give away any spoilers but it is a must to watch. If you liked other contemporary British films such as Rita, Sue and Bob Too, Kes, Poor Cow, A Taste of Honey, Sweet Sixteen, Cathy Come Home and Angela's Ashes, then your going to love this. Yes this is one for my collection if and when it comes out on DVD. 10/10.
