Seen any good movies lately? Post here!
Rochelle and me just watched Sweet sixteen
Fantastic movie. Directed by Ken Loach, and his style shows. All dialogue and acting is very unpolished, unrestricted and immediate - just like real life. Too often in movies the characters talk in such deliberate way according to a poetic script, but in Loaches films, and in this one particular, the actors feel like they have been thrown in to the set and act from their guts.
I liked the storyline as well, its about a kid just 15 years old from poor glasgow area trying to build a future for himself. His mom is in prison and his dad is very abusive (if that guy was his real dad, i never quite understood). He builds his dream future on his idea of what his mom will be like when she gets out, and thats the only chance he gives to himself.
Anyways, the movie should have had subtitles, because the glasgow accent can't really be counted as english!
