My goodness, what a great movie. When daughter first told us about it, it was in the context of “we watched this really weird movie on the bus back from the ski trip,’ which really isn’t such a ringing endorsement. But somehow it ended up in our Netflix que and we watched it last night. Now, perhaps some of it had to do with it being Mother’s Day and all that yesterday, but it has a wonderful plot. It starts off a little slowly, and you’re sitting there thinking, hmm, here’s one of these strange european movies, but after about fifteen minutes it hooks you. I was sobbing like a blubbering baby at the end. The two boys who play brothers are fantastic. The premise is two boys, whose mom has died, move with their dad to a new town a few days before England is switching from the pound to the euro, and one of the boys ‘finds’ several hundred thousand pounds. What do they do?
Really, a great movie, and Nightfly you especially will like it.

    I’ve had this on my TiVo search for almost a year and it still hasn’t come up. I suppose I’ll have to rent the DVD. I’ll add yours to the fairly long list of raves I’ve read about it.

    With an endorsement like that, I can hardly refuse…

    ‘Fly, it is a wonderful study of ethics, and of how people act versus what they profess.
