Director: Margaret Corkery
Cast: Amy Kirwan, Robert Donnelly, Darren Healy
An ambitious, low-budget Irish film with enough dark humour and observation to satisfy.
The title character (played by Donnelly) is a hyperactive six-year-old who competes with his frustrated father (Healy) for the affection of his mother (Kirwan), a battle that gets more out of control when the family go on holiday.
The characters are caught in a loveless companionship and, unfortunately, are not sufficiently engaging to enlist our sympathy.
But that said, it is a brave attempt that tries to look at the meaning of family.
Star Rating: 3/5
