Poignant, moving and impossible to forget
on 19 August 2011
This film is very low budget, uneven, certainly and flawed - but forget all that as at its heart this is a very rare gem of a movie - powered by an unforgettable, Oscar worthy performance from Aidan Gillen.
It is a film about the impact people can unexpectedly have in your life and how your whole life view can be altered through meaningful human interaction and for that alone it is an important film.
The ending is heart-wrenching and as poignant as any - It's a Wonderful Life or Midnight Cowboy come to mind as comparable in their impact and emotional resonance.
