Synopsis

Glasgow, summer, 1973. Ryan, 12, drowns during a play fight with his neighbour, James. James runs home, a flat where he lives with his often-drunk da, his ma, and sisters. This coming-of-age story follows James as he tags along with the older lads; has a friendship with his quirky wee rodent-loving neighbor, Kenny; spends time with Margaret Anne, myopic, slightly older, the local sexual punching bag; and, has a moment or two of joy.

Beautiful, grim, poetic. Reminiscent of the autobiographical films of Terence Davies and Bill Douglas.

An above average movie. I'm really glad our hero doesn't die in the end.
