One to watch out for...
6 January 2016 | by Red_IdentitySee all my reviews

Here is an engaging, well-told story about addiction and the relationship between mother and son. Sounds melodramatic, and in aspects it could be, but it never feels like such a film. The whole thing is fully realized, very well-written, with a clear, true eye for the characters and who they are. The two leads are fantastic, especially Jack Reynor who I was previously impressed by in What Richard Did. He's a true leading actor, and he has proved to have the talent to really dive into raw, strong material. The film would be worth it just for him, but all of the actors are committed. This is definitely very recommended for all filmgoers.
