Cinema Diary - Vol 4 E3 - Spring 2013 (38 movies items)

" Based upon the novel by Patrick McCabe and directed by Neil Jordan this dark film tells the story of the trials and adventures of a boy from the lower class in Ireland. I think this will remain one of my favorite films from Neil Jordan simply for the wonderful cinematography and straightforward approach."
