This touching, heartfelt offering from Stephen Frears ("Dangerous Liasons", "High Fidelity") captures a child's eye view of the depths of the depression in Liverpool (circa 1930) and enriches it with the irony and keyhole detail of a small boy's perspective. Brilliant performances by Ian Hart, Claire Hackett and Anne Reid.
