Boy stephen'S REVIEW


Overrated


Yes it has great comidic moments but it fails as comedy. The children and the beginning and the end of the film saved it from its pervading bleakness. Alameins character is disfunctional- his presence in the film disturbing. The woman - barely sketched in - absent Gran, the hard working auntie and the boys deceased mother are the smallest threads of stability in the childrens lives that deserved to be teased out to make sense of the otherwise weak story line
