A Quick Review: British film strikes again as I discovered this gem on the BBC iPlayer last month. Raw and genuine - it was hard to watch at first as it was very moving. It was shockingly sad and went to places I was completely not expecting and so was just fantastic to watch. The cinematography was beautiful and the lead performance was outstanding - especially from someone so young! I would definitely recommend checking this out as it isn’t something you get to see everything day... 
Score: 8.5/10
