CGiii Comment

A challenging watch...certainly not for the faint of heart!

A film about a young man with severe mental health issues is never going to be pretty. This is ugly...so much so that when the breath-taking edit comes along there is an audible gasp of respite.

A remarkable film-making achievement...to literally take your audience into the darkest of places, the darkest of minds and then let them breathe. Profoundly sad, sensationally sensorial.

Kudos.


No trailer...

The(ir) Blurb...

Gay and lonely, Lloyd is on a shame-fuelled, Grindr-addicted spiral into tragedy.
