Great Indie Film of a Blind Man's quest.
12 June 2015 | by t-dooley-69-386916See all my reviews

Every now and then a small film comes along and makes a big impact and I felt this was such a film. Its stars Alec Newman ('A Lonely Place to die') as Mal; he is a British Army veteran of Afghanistan where he lost sight in both eyes. He is living in a sink hole estate in London and his only friend is his guide dog – Quince.

Then one day Quince runs off or rather he does not bring his ball back and Mal is left lost in a dark World. So he decides to find his dog which means entering the Greyhawk estate and facing up to all it has to offer. He is also disillusioned with the World and has an attitude that us designed to lose and not win friends.

As I said this is a remarkable film and Alec Newman's performance as the blind soldier is brilliant. There is a part role for Jack Shepherd too and he is always good value. Zoe Telford puts in a great performance as the mother with a heart who has given up on her dreams.

This story touches on many issues and does so in a very real and human way. It is one where you never even glance at your watch it is that engrossing – completely recommended.
