Excellent film making debut from a promising Irish director.
31 December 2010 | by duignan6See all my reviews

Sometimes you happen upon something marvelous not by intention but by mistake, like when you miss a bus only to meet a dearly missed friend a few minutes later.

It was in one of these instances that I stumbled upon All Good Children, upon hearing Catfish was sold out I settled instead for a film and director I knew nothing about and was treated to 88 minutes of quality film making.

Rather than dissect the film in detail I will simply urge you to go see this. It is beautifully shot, perfectly paced and we are treated to some mesmerizing performances from the young actors.
