Storyline

Two characters strive to rebuild their lives in the wake of a shared tragedy: Kyle attempts to escape his past while a working mother goes to desperate ends to build a better future for her daughter. Drawing heart-wrenching emotion from its non-professional cast, this is a nervy, singular achievement of independent filmmaking. Written by Anon

Gritty and realistic
5 April 2010 | by steve-1241See all my reviews

Kyle is an independent film by John Bradburn and it is gritty,realistic and rewarding. Kyle is determined to start his life afresh and we see him working at a busy market and his efforts to fit into a society that has scarred him in the past. Running parallel we see a young desperate mother struggling to bring up her daughter for whom she will do almost anything.The film cleverly links together these two strands that ultimately join together at the conclusion. Hugh Blackwood as the mothers 'Boss'plays a decent man who ultimately ends up loathing himself at his attempt to help his employee while satisfying his own desires. The film has a timeless feel to it, it could be set in any decade, from the sixties to the present day, and addresses real issues.Bradburn has drawn great performances from the cast and Blackwood & O'Neil are surely destined for more success. Bradburn could be a worthy successor to loach and Leigh given the chance, a stunning debut.
