Easily Neil Jordan's most underrated film.
23 September 1999 | by See all my reviews

This charming, low-key drama about an Irish teenager and his troubled family relationships is one of Neil Jordan's best pieces of work.

It's certainly his most underrated film, and leaves ALL his American efforts a long way behind.

The gentle, yet disciplined pace of the script and direction shows that Jordan was well and truly on track for the Best Original Screenplay Oscar he went on to collect for his next project, THE CRYING GAME.
