A moving and persuasive story of a family facing tragedy & calamity. Visually distinctive. Restrained but powerful acting, including by young actors as well as name-catching character-acting stars (in UK at least). Although a mostly unrelenting grey-setting, rain-miserable British "social realist" film (as the critics have it) it is refreshing in its lack of cliche, and ultimate hints of family change. A film to talk over, that leaves you thoughtful, without beating you over the head, and with a head full of striking visual images.
