A film by Terence Davies. Terence Davies lyrical hymn to childhood revisits the same territory as his prize winning debut feature Distant Voices, Still Lives, this time focusing on his own memories of growing up in a working-class, Catholic family in Liverpool. Eleven-year-old Bud (a heartbreaking performance from Leigh McCormack) finds escape from the greyness of 50s Britain through trips to the cinema and in the warmth of family life. But as he gets older, the agonies of the adult world the casual cruelty of bullying, the tyranny of school and the dread of religion begin to invade his life . Time and memory blend and blur through Davies fluid camerawork; slow tracking shots, pan and dreamlike dissolves combine to create the world of Bud's imagination and the lost paradise of childhood.
