My Brother Tom 2001
1h 45min | Drama | 16 November 2001 (UK)

Storyline:

A teenage girl, Jessica, befriends a teenage boy called Tom, who is bullied by a local gang. She is abused by Jack, who is both her neighbour and school teacher, and Tom is sexually abused by his father. Together they bond in the woods, creating a private reality that no-one else can enter.

User review:

A fascinating and disturbing study of two damaged teenagers who find solace in each other’s company.

This is what film is all about. The use of hand-held DV – the unselfconscious performances of the two leads – the harsh portrayal of the selfish acts of cruelty perpetrated by unthinking adults on vulnerable, impressionable children. I love this film, but I could barely watch it at times.

The two leads reminded me of a young Joanne Whalley (Jenna Harrison should go far if there’s any justice in the film industry) and a seriously unhinged Lee Evans without any of the comedy – just his style of manic lashing out.

Spoiled on its UK TV airing by the booming Channel 4 Big Brother voice ruining the mood over the credits. Channel 4 seems happy to destroy the end of its own movies. Sad.
