A great film
15 March 2014 | by harrison-pinnerSee all my reviews

Boston Kickout puts across the difficult issues and worries of being a teen and coming of age in a small rural town. John Simm plays his character very well in one of the best of his first few movies. People from the town will enjoy the references to parts of the town. The feeling portrayed are a mix of joy and despair as Phil's life seems to be crumbling away before him with his friends leaving, getting married and having a break down, when he finally finds someone he feels he can confide in she also leaves him, leaving him with no way to turn. Overall brilliantly acted and a good proper British film. Would recommend to everyone.
