I feel I can't praise enough this wonderful film based on a novel by Catherine Cookson (which I have not read). The setting in the poor, bleak working-class neighbourhood of Fifteen Streets, in turn-of-the-century Newcastle, is wonderfully good, but especially, the acting is superb (do they all really speak that way?). The conflicts that these characters live through in the story change them forever, and you actually can see this in the expression on their faces, from hopeful to hopeless, and in the inflection of their voices. This is really ACTING at its best. After watching the film we are left with a feeling of respect for these hard workers and their families, who get over misery and bad times thanks to their sense of dignity and (in the case of the main character -who is NOT Sean Bean-) love. Not to miss, even if you are not a romance buff (which I am not).

This is one of those films, which you just want to tell the world about, I love the actors the story line everything!! every girl loves a romance, but it appeals to men to with the violence, and plot. What a will say is why it's not one of her most famous novels,I'll never know, but to be honest, she'd written a few so they can't all go down a storm. Sean Bean is the only name you'll know, and believe me he plays a truly memorable character! but the Cast are all wonderful actors, it period dramas at it's best!! Liverpool makes for a lovely location. And how often do you hear that said!! Well product info, Well its on DVD in a Daily Mirror Case,unfortunately it doesn't come with tissues and popcorn!

I THINK THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST OF CATERINE COOKSON'S STORY'S. OWEN TEAL IS GREAT AS JOHN HE BRINGS THE CHARACTER TO LIFE. YOU CARE ABOUT THEM YOU GET ANGRY AT THEM AND YOU LOVE THEM.

Catherine Cookson wrote a lot of books, some of which were televised. She was born in the north of England and wrote about the people around her. Poverty, division of classes, brutality, love and family are all covered. The cast, headed by Sean Bean did a fine job of portraying the story of The Fifteen Streets. The story is dark as most of her books are. She tells it like it was. Her storyline is interesting and the characters well fleshed out. I enjoyed this one and recommend it.

The fifteen streets: where most families rely on the dockyards for work. The O'Brien's, living on the bread line, have five children, of which three are boys. The two eldest, played by Owen Teal (John) and Sean Bean (Dominic), are always at loggerheads. Because of a family tragedy, the brothers have a real 'bloody' punch up towards the end of the story......A romantic attachment develops between John and the local school teacher, whose parents are wealthy shipyard owners. The teacher's hoity-toity mother does not approve............There are plenty of exciting moments in this Northern drama: the river Tyne features in it too...............................If you purchase this DVD the storyline will not disappoint you.
