You have to hand it to Ken Loach, his films are like no other, and he always captures a moving tale brilliantly, with plenty of grit and black humour. 'Sweet Sixteen' hit the cinemas in 2002, and became a critically acclaimed success.

The film centres around Liam (Martin Compston in his debut), a typical teenage Scottish lad from a tough working class background, who is determined to have a normal family life once his mother gets out of prison. He sets out to raise the money for a home in a quiet village, but needs the money to do it. Crazy schemes lead to trouble, and Liam finds himself dangerously out of his depth, digging a hole he just can't get out of. We as the viewer feel for him, and it is largely due to Martin's strong acting, and Loach's faultless portrayal of the bleak life people in poverty face.

When you watch a Ken Loach film, you can imagine everything that is taking place on the screen as being true, like viewing a documentary, because his movies are so realistic. 'Sweet Sixteen' is a great little film, depressing, moving, and one you'll want to see again.

I can't praise this film highly enough. Realistic, heart wrenching, thought provoking with lots of humour. Definitely in my top 10.
