Robert Carlyle is amazing (as always) in this beautifully heartfelt movie. It is one of the best movies I have seen in a long time. The acting is simply brilliant and the storyline keeps you hooked until the very end. This is a movie you will watch over and over again!

What makes a person a person?

Is it natural charm or a pleasant disposition? Is it a talent for appreciating a field full of salad greens, a bar full of people, or the waste of a world full of talented lives too soon lost? Can it be a sadness so close and so fierce that it can not be drowned out with song or in the depths of a bottle? Is it the fear of relenting to a regret so dear that it has crowded out all that might've been, until relenting is all one can do with what's left? Is it finding that the best way forward has always been the way back all along? This film makes such a person ...and it does it very well.
