A great film. I loved it. Funny in some parts but very sad too. If you don't like unhappy endings, I wouldnt recommend it, but it's definitely worth watching. Brilliant performances from Hugh O'Conor and Liam Neeson.My Movie Rating: 9 / 10
Very well made and extremely well acted. The ending is not recommended for the tender-hearted. (who am I kidding? That's me!) But I give it high marks for good use of talent.My Movie Rating: 8 / 10
