From the outset I was happy to forgive this scrappy indie its budget constraints - it is after all a debut British feature without the bells and whistles of funding support - and was happy I did. It has a sort of grungy appeal of a film in the gutter looking at the stars, with flawed characters leading aimless, flawed lives, but clinging to the shreds of romance they seem to have grabbed but with no idea where from. Basically, the story of my youth! Best scenes were the arguments between Liza and Sally, uncomfortable though they were to watch, they were very well handled, the camera remaining un-intrusive, the emotions raw and sticky. One of those films that disappeared quickly but will be unearthed as a gritty classic in future I reckon.
Not for me
