Luke, an independent young man with Down's syndrome, is forced to live in a care home after his elderly mother dies. He struggles to settle there, both frustrated at having his wings clipped by its rules, and unimpressed by his new house mates. His disappointment with his new home soon turns to wonder when Luke discovers a way out and begins to explore the surrounding countryside. When he is caught sneaking out by Pete, a troubled youth who tends the gardens at the home, the two strike up an unlikely rapport: Pete covers for Luke and in return Luke helps Pete clear the garden. On one illicit excursion to the adjoining field Luke discovers a young girl in desperate need of his help.

8/10 and it COULD so easily have had a 10 - which I have never awarded
16 April 2018 | by derek-eynonSee all my reviews

It just needed one tiny thing more.: an ending.

In the cases of movies like No Country For Old Men and There Will Be Blood I would argue that IF YOU CAN'T THINK OF AN ENDING DONT BOTHER MAKING THE MOVIE.

I would not, however argue this in the case of My Feral Heart, because the world is a better place for it.

It is moving but never sentimental and highlights the good that there is in people, when they're not being bad.

I don't know what to say about lead Steven Brandon, 'outstanding' seems inadequate for such a talent. Everyone is excellent in it, and if this movie gets half the attention it deserves all concerned should have long and stellar careers.
