Sweet Sixteen

British filmmaker Ken Loach (Poor Cow, My Name is Joe) contributes this potent mixture of social realism and near-Shakespearean tragedy. A young Scottish lad named Liam (Martin Compston) tries to rescue his mother from a life of poverty and abuse by getting into the drug peddling business. Compston (along with the rest of the largely unprofessional cast) does a shattering job, with a difficult character. We despise Liam's actions but admire his dreams, his motives and his fierce loyaty to friends and family. As he sinks deeper into the Glasgow underworld, though, we begin to fear that he'll never surface again. Dark, dramatic and filled with a surprising lust for life. Think Trainspotting mixed with Hamlet. 106 minutes
