The brilliant Edward Hogg (White Lightnin'; Bunny and the Bull) provides the unforgettable performance at the heart of this deeply-felt and darkly funny study of one man's walk on the weird side. Ollie is a sweet-natured science geek, happily in love with the beautiful Noreen (Jodie Whittaker). But when tragedy strikes, Ollie's not inconsiderable imagination spins out of control, and his sanity begins to slip away.

Writer/director Viv Fongenie works hard to assess the impact of schizophrenia on sufferers and those around them, but any claims that this movie is Donnie Darko meets Billy Liar are well wide of the mark.
An enjoyable and emotionally engaging film with a strong narrative, charming performances and an important message about mental illness to communicate.
