A mesmerising opener sees family man Tom (Tom Fisher) inexplicably up sticks from suburban Birmingham to pursue a life on London’s mean streets.
Into his solitary world crashes motormouth man-child Aidan (Aidan Gillen), who’s as buoyant as Tom is troubled.
If writer/director Jamie Thraves overdoses on ambiguity – Tom’s motivations are left unexplained to an extent that distracts rather than intrigues – the yin-yang central dynamic crackles with heart and humour.
Gillen’s manic turn is the attention grabber, but Fisher’s quietly wounded man-on-the verge is a solid anchor.
