This review is from: A Room for Romeo Brass [DVD]  (DVD)
What can I say, this film is amazing :)
Anyone who has enjoyed any of Shane Meadows films or Paddy Considine's for that matter, look no further. Shane's brillliant talents at directing beautiful films that make us laugh and cry and Paddy's fantastic acting (as ever) makes this film one you can't afford to miss.
Two young boys, Gavin and Romeo (Andrew Shim- This is England), are best friends. Equally troubled at home and school (with parents who are either downright weird or very violent) they stick together and look out for one another whenever trouble arises.
But when strange young outcast Morell (Considine- Dead Man's Shoes, Hot Fuzz) saves the boys from being beaten up, their lives start to change forever, and the boy's relationships with each other and their own parents are put to the test.
Something that starts off so light hearted and fun starts to turn ever so dark. It really is compelling stuff.
Fantastic acting (as ever with Meadow's films) and it is guarrenteed to make you burst out laughing, into tears and keep you stuck on the edge of your seat.
If you enjoy British films, you can't afford to miss this one. Really, you can't.
