My bottom set year 9 drama class could have handled the subject with more sensitivity
I must admit I did not expect too much from this film, not being much of a Danny Dyer fan. Even so, it was surprisingly dreadful and instantly forgettable. What self indulgent twaddle, containing easily the most offensive portrayal of someone with autism I have ever seen - my bottom set year 9 drama class could have handled the subject with far greater sensitivity. Quite how any of the actors were conned into associating themselves with making it is beyond me. Unless you are researching for your dissertation on the worst British films of all time, there is absolutely NO justification whatsoever in choosing to watch this. Don't let anyone persuade you otherwise.
