Synopsis:
The powerful feature-film debut of acclaimed young director Joe Stephenson, this compelling coming-of-age drama builds upon on a remarkable central performance from newcomer Scott Chambers. Chambers plays Richard, a fifteen-year-old boy with learning difficulties who lives in a shabby caravan with his older brother, Polly. Life for the siblings is harsh, with the engaging, nature-loving teenager yearning for stability while frequently finding himself on the wrong side of his brother's destructive, often violent moods.
Finding it easier to communicate with animals none more so than his beloved hen, Fiona Richard nevertheless forms a strong friendship with rebellious seventeen-year-old Annabel, whose family have recently acquired the farmland on which the brothers live. But growing conflict with the new landowners will lead to a situation that severely tests Richard's natural optimism, as a world of privilege collides with the brothers' precarious, marginalised existence.

A film about love, hate, loathing and ultimately redemption. It will stay with you for a very long time. Highly recommended.

A beautiful, challenging film - Chicken review by SR

I have been a member of CP for some years, but have never written a review. This film prompted me to write one. You won't find better acting - Scott Chambers is phenomenal. It's a challenging film but stick with it.
