It's okay, but that's about it. The acting is solid, although the directing, cinematography, and writing all fall short; not to mention it's too easily predictable. I'm getting sick of all these heroin films. Loved that kid though.

Very good British drugs-drama. Well acting of the mother and the 10 year old boy.

A 10 year old boy in London struggles to hold together his family in the face of his mother's heroin addiction. For some reason, I can't get enough of these British dramas about white trash living in squalor. Despite the laughable imagery which equates attending a West Ham United match with the idealized notion of a happy life, a couple of really solid acting performances prevent this from being too ridiculous. Parker and Eden are fantastic as the mom and son. Kind of a downer, but worth a look.

A pre-teen West Ham-supporter and his junkie mother, that's a double whammy of a crappy childhood - and fondling Keira's boob isn't much of a solace, but at least it's a better foundation for fantasies than the shitty football he's suffering. A lot more well-acted than a Suárez-dive, less soft than Fat Sam's belly, and more enjoyable than tedious tiki-taka -but the storytelling also takes some route-1 approaches with sequences less sophisticated than Fat S's football. *P* #14#, story, actresses

Alright, alright, I'm convinced. Heroin sounds awesome.

"Though compellingly acted, Pure's spit and polished kitchen-sink realism exudes a disconcertingly cheery affection for the lives of its characters." - Ed Gonzalez

I liked Keira Knightley in this even with her British accent. Molly Parker was great as the heroine addicted mother. And Harry Eden was a stand out as the young boy struggling to help his mother when she turns to drugs and becomes addicted. The movie takes several very dark dramatic turns. Ultimately the kid succeeds in saving her, but I felt the ending was a bit sugar coated. A good engaging story, but sometimes uncomfortable to watch these events unfold.

Molly Parker is both underappreciated and underused in Hollywood. This is a poigniant story of drugs and the toll they take on the innocent. Parker is excellent!
