Christmas 1988. Soulmates, woody and Lol find themselves in exile from each other and the gang. Trying to understand the definition 'growing up', Shaun begins a course at College, that quickly takes the wrong turn.
The year is 1990, the rave scene has just entered England. The sound of the Stone roses lurks toward Shaun and the gang. This means that Woody and Lol are living in a domestic bliss, they are happy again. But this year will see huge changes in everyone. This is the year 1990. This is England.

Joseph falls into despair when his nine-year-old son leaves for Australia with his ex. Sufffering the hangover from hell, he walks away from his present life and boards a boat bound for Ireland to confront memories from his childhood.
This is a short, quintessential battle-of-the-generations film. Both sides of the "gap" were realistically portrayed and the situation marginally real at least in its inception if not in its outcome. The boys and girls used their real accents (amateurs??) but the dialogue was not difficult to decipher for anyone unfamiliar with native British dialects. The consequences of thoughtless actions (the difference between "child-like" and "childish") were nicely portrayed but I'm not sure I like the ending. See for yourself if you can find it. Worth a watch. If I'd been casting/directing this film I would've had more interaction between the two groups and perhaps more focus on the innocence of the younger boys.
