Sweet Sixteen DVD

Sweet Sixteen DVD
Ken Loach, the award winning director of ‘Kes’, ‘Land and Freedom’ & ‘My Name is Joe’, returns with an astonishingly powerful film that won the praise of every critic in the country. Set in the estates of Greenock in Scotland, Liam (an astounding performance by new-comer Martin Compston) dreams of the family life he never had. With his mum to be released from prison in time for his 16th birthday, Liam is determined that things will be different. And that means creating a safe haven beyond the reach of wasters like his mum’s boyfriend Stan and his own mean-spirited grandfather. But first he's got to raise cash – no mean feat for a skint teenager. It's not long before Liam and his pals' crazy schemes lead them into all sorts of trouble. Finding himself dangerously out of his depth, Liam knows he should walk away. Only this time, he just can’t let go.
