I read some good reviews about this film. It has some nominations for the European cinema awards and it won the Bafta award to the best film last year 2009. The director Andrea Arnold made a brilliant work showing some points about the real life, and filming a kind of social cinema quite similar to the work of Ken Loach.
The film takes place in the suburbs of London and it shows a lot of very interesting things like, for example, the life of a worker family, the lack of communication and the respect, the facing up to deception, and specially the contradictions of the adolescence or the looking for a place in the world. The young actress Katie Jarvis is a real hurricane and her work is amazing. She supports the 80% of the movie and the result is very good. One of the other actors, Michael Fassbender, appears making also a great work in the movie.
For me, this is the best film of this week. Without a doubt I’ll follow the career of this director. Brilliant movie.
My score: 9 (out of 10)
