Simon Bird (of The Inbetweeners) makes his directorial debut with this thoughtful and touching film about a mother and her teenage son. Daniel is shy, lonely, and obsessed with heavy metal music. Sue is lonely too, trying to look after her troubled son, but also hoping to make a life of her own. The film takes the trouble to allow both its central characters a story and emotional complexity. There’s an excellent supporting cast, but the film belongs to stars Monica Dolan and Earl Cave.
