Great characters, great dialog, drama and laughs
10 October 2018 | by jp-mcconnellSee all my reviews

Just watched this pearl of a film and must recommend it! I could be accused of bias because my brother and sister in law are in the cast but this is a real gem and you won't see many films like it. The characters really come to life and in the 90 odd minutes of playtime I really got a great glimpse of these guys living paycheck to paycheck. I laughed a lot at Jerome's one liners and you get a great feel for the tough life the whole cast are portraying and at the same time you get to see the small victories and snatches of happiness that come their way too. Can't wait to see the next film the crew are putting together. Great work!
