“Engaging, tender film-making which tugs at the heart-strings, spurred by a sympathetic cast and the young lead, newcomer Jude Hill.”~Fionnuala Halligan, Screen Daily
Aroview: Richly evocative cine-memoir from director Kenneth Branagh, depicting a young boy's childhood in late 60's Belfast, Northern Ireland.
Set around the start of The Troubles, a tumultuous political environment that irrevocably changed the vibrant working class community that the director himself came of age in. A deeply personal project for Branagh which imbues the era with affection and nostalgia. Scored by Belfast native Van Morrison.

4 stars (Very Good) Superb acting all round especially young Jude Hill filmed in beautiful b & w. 1960s Belfast is lovingly re-created along with the tensions and affections. I especially liked the outdoor loo. Very enjoyable and a great sound-track.~Sandy
