I think that young Mr. Thomas Sangster is one of the most promising young actors today. I've seen several of the films that's he's acted in and was never disappointed. As a social worker, I've had the opportunity to meet young men and women dealing with the challenges of being marginalized. Poor whites in our country and Great Britain are sometimes forgotten. Yet many have been handicapped by economic and social segregation that is as deadly as race, gender, or sexual preference. Young white males seem to have the greatest rage about their plight and often strike back through violent crime. The effort of this young teen in trying to keep a fragment of his family together is heart rendering. And the quest for the "missing father" is played out again and again in their lives. This film rings through to these and other themes. And Thomas is very convincing in his portrayal of his character.

First I was pleased to order the video as the movie never showed in theaters in my area.As a Sanger fan since Love Actually it has been enjoyable to watch his acting capabilities emerge. In this movie he is in a serious role and the plot has a bittersweet English turn. He does an admirable job with the role as well the phonetics in his speech. I believe he is even taller than in Nowhere Boy. Item was shipped promptly and in a correctly sized carton per Amazon's usual standards. Now if someone can tell me where I can purchase a DVD of the short The Alchemists Suitcase I will be extremely happy and grateful

This film is revelant. The kid brother has an impotrtant message that is too much understatated in that he undesrstands the developmental imporatance zero-15 yr old. I have been rejected by a father and had aunts and boyfriiends who have been rejected. We do not turn up as the casualties of soceirty because we cope..Meanwhile it IZ mental abuse to have had a cold distant or dis-interested father. We integratrate but never reach our potentisl. FREQUENTLY dismissed as drug users or alcoholics. After middle-age then i got the oversight to demand my rights from a negligant parent (and pass sentence instead of only be dis-associated or angry.) Kids, as in the kidbrother in this film, compelled as children , totally get the connecttion that needs to be or have been made in order to be in a whole soul sense.

Theree is an improbable screen-play. For example a baby, who still wears diapers needs feeds, which is not addressed enough in real time How the two teen brothers go about the mundane duties of child-care is missing from the plot. Yet its appeal is a cerain gritty,urban, emotional realism. The film could have been de-railed especially since the elder brother is such a laconic character. They are on the run from the police after abducting the baby brother out of child-care. Again , improbably,they end up in the back of beyond in Wales after a soldier,met for a first time,gives them the Welsh address. There is much banter about coming out of careless, disfunctional homes from all the characters. Suprisingly, this film holds together with a rough, tender charm of its own due to thoughtful, great directing and its promise to not to bull-sh#t holds true. Has good music when it occurs.
It brings home just how important the bonds we make in developmental years are with family.

Poorly produced and directed. May have greater appeal in Britain. Sangster's, acting was not up to his usual standards. It was difficult to follow the disjointed flow of the movie. The writing was really poor.
