A Way of Life

A moving and unavoidably grim look at the life of a teen mother and her friends who can see no way out of the poverty cycle they are in, though they long for something better. When their boredom and frustration come to boiling point, it is a Turkish Muslim neighbour who finds himself the target of their pent-up aggression. Brenda Blethyn provides support as the young girl's mother in this accomplished and uncompromising British drama.
