I can't believe it's only one hour and 12 minutes. Throughout the whole journey I feel that it's an extremely long and beautiful movie whose quality is tantamount to a movie whose duration is two hours. This is because many shorter movies do not deliver a message that's as strong, but in this case the message is so well-delivered just in a short amount of time.
It's such a sweet tale about two kids who are from dysfunctional families and want to explore something bigger than themselves. I especially like the fact that the movie's filmed in black and white when they're at home, but it is in colour when the kids ran away from home and went to Dublin. It really shows that in their homes there is almost no life and everything is dull and boring.
O'Neil and Curry did a wonderful job in portraying these children who're lost and only find each other to confide in when things go horrible. There's a really moving dialogue in the movie:
Kylie: Thanks for saving me.
Dylan: You saved me first.
I think it's really moving and the fact that they're still young shows the extent of bond that they have for each other even when they're not fully mature yet.
The movie's just simply too beautiful to be true. I love the fact that the movie doesn't portray a family as something that's happy even when it's Christmas time. This is because during Christmas there are so many families out there that are not happy, and the children are left to suffer.
