Astounding and Unforgettable
30 July 2015 | by Film-SlaveSee all my reviews

This is a simple story of childhood tragedy, absence of fatherly love, and a young man with unreconciled grief and emotional turmoil. Young actor Finn Elliott turns in a remarkable performance. He's a beautiful kid and delivers a complex role with naturalness and heartbreaking authenticity.

When the role is picked up by George MacKay, the transition is seamless. After a forced absence which takes place between episodes, he returns older and harder, but not repaired. As his stepmother says, a "broken thing." MacKay has turned in impressive leading performances in HOW I LIVE NOW and PRIDE. He is absolutely among the rising class of performers who will probably dominate the next generation.

Greg Wise in the role of the father is cold and rigid, but isn't a monster; he's simply unequipped with emotional warmth for his son or his new wife. This television production exceeds most of the feature films I've seen this year.
