Storyline

In the Midlands, two men and a boy are on losing streaks: Richard has a dead-end job, and his wife leaves him because he's inattentive and has a juvenile obsession for 11th-century battle reenactments. His best friend Julian still lives with mum and divides his obsessions between Vikings and Star Trek. Then there's Richard's son Martin, picked on at school in part because of his father's hobby. Richard vows to win back the heart of his ex, Julian may have met someone online who shares his interests, and Martin wants to stand up to bullies. All get bad advice, which they act on. Is there any hope for any of them? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Looing good :)
11 January 2009 | by jessbinxSee all my reviews

This looks so awesome, I can't wait to get it on DVD. It was shot in my school, last year, though sadly whilst we were all on our summer holidays, so no one was around to mess it up. Apparently our school was chosen "because it looked the most stereotypically school-like." It's so weird seeing actors using our uniforms in the adverts. Some of my friends were extras, too. If you type in Faintheart on Youtube, you get up slide-shows of them with the actors, which is really great. So as well as it being a great film to look out for, it's going to be like a sort of school memento. The whole school is pretty much going to see it screened at the local Vue, if it's chosen to be shown here. How many people can say they've had a film shot at their school? Sort of makes you wish you took drama...
