CGiii Comment

Kitchen sink drama and what it was like to be a teen in the early 60s - pretty damn grim by the looks of it.

It's is an engrossing tale of friendship and clandestine attraction - realistically done.

This is possibly The Crying Game of the 60s.

Now, it's not so subtle to shock...but, in its day...wow.

Unfortunately, few people make films with this amount of integrity.
