The second feature by Terence Davies, one of the great poets of British cinema (and director of the new Deep Blue Sea...) is a gorgeous, visually elaborate paean to his sometimes difficult boyhood in 1950s Liverpool - and to the transcendent, transporting power of cinema and popular music. The impressionistic drama concerns 11-year-old Bud, a dreamy, sensitive boy growing up in a loving, working-class Catholic family. Occasionally bullied at his new school, Bud finds refuge in the local movie house. (Jim Sinclair, Pacific Cinematheque)

"A deeply personal film, and at times a touching one, it is a collection of fragments and memories artfully pieced into a quirky, captivating book of dreams." (New York Times)
