A sad truth
27 January 2019 | by stevelomas-69401See all my reviews

A sad and depressing slice of social commentary from Hull. The film is well shot and full of well meaning and earnest souls just trying (desperately sometimes) to do their best with what they've got. Ultimately though I feel the same with this as any other chunk of social realism; been there, seen it, done it, don't want to see it all over again.
