Two boys discover a fortune. What are they to do with it? Nine-year-old Anthony is for investing and schmoozing; seven-year-old Damian is for making lives better. Damian is a child-expert on the saints, who are surprisingly practical when he discusses things with them. Why, St Claire even smokes roll-ups (it's allowed, in heaven). Boyle and screenwriter Frank Cottrell Boyce conjure up a child's-eye-view of something resembling Shallow Grave that avoids sentimentality while seeing the best in people.


A family film of limitless imagination and surprising of the best films of the year.
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
