Robert Carlyle, in what some say is his best performance since Trainspotting, stars as Shaun, caring for his dying alcoholic friend. Through three time-scales – childhood, adolescent and the present in their 30’s – we see the roots both of their friendship and of the fissures that have brought them to this.
Glenaan's spare film, set on a council estate in Bolsover, shows how dreams are cruelly extinguished, yet little bits of surreal magic illuminate this tough film with glimmers of hope.
James Christopher, The Times
