   Louis R. Carlozo, Chicago Tribune

“Enlivens the classic premise of innocent-in-the-city by moving its archetypal characters in unexpected directions.”
Carla Meyer, San Francisco Chronicle

“The coming-of-age story about the corruptions of the big city has been done a few thousand times, but at least this one offers a fresh mix of open-minded intelligence and a heartfelt point of view.”

  1. :

    This is one of my old favourites, and a film which deserves special mention for the manner in which it explores a friendship between two young men facing a demanding world with little support. The fact that one of them is gay, seems irrelevant as each pursue their individual dreams of making it in the world, and then finding that support in each other.

    Superbly written (based on the Director’s own story) with a phenomenal music score. Both Michael Legge (Shane) and Allen Leech (Vincent) are strong leads, with a believable synergy between their characters.

    A must for light hearted fun, and a more substantive commentary on the importance of being earnest.
