Having announced himself as a storyteller of rare sensitivity with his previous film I Used to Live Here (CFF 2014), Frank Berry brings something of a documentarian’s rigour to the tale of Michael, a luckless 18-year-old who is misfortunate to be sent to prison.
Vulnerable and alone, Michael is taken under the wing of a score-settling older prisoner (a quietly unhinged performance by Moe Dunford).
With nary a hint of a soapbox and with deep humanity, Berry portrays a penal system that extends beyond the prison walls.
