Brian Talbot: seventeen, virgin, high school dropout, nightshift worker at the local dairy, in love. When life is kicking you down, you need to kick back, but when your old man lives in the shed in the backyard, and your mum has problems of her own, that's not always easy. Sometimes, though, you just gotta hang in there, and you never know what might happen ... Both humorous and confronting, Bill Condon has created a gripping urban tale of life, death, love, joy, and family, which reminds us all to hold on to the important things, however difficult that might be.
