Aro Favourite Room for Romeo Brass, A


UK 1999, 90 minutes
Dir. Shane Meadows
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama, Suspense/Crime / Youth

Topics: Rites-of-passage.


Aroview: This extraordinary coming-of-age story places two twelve-year-old boys in the company of a well-meaning but socially-inept adult who has designs on one of their sisters.

The volatility of the situation creates a tension not usually found in ‘social realist’ dramas, and in a bravura performance, Paddy Considine creates a tragically unhinged character that is entirely unique. Soundtrack includes Stone Roses, Beck, Beth Orton and Billy Bragg.
