A remarkably solid and sincere look at lives marginalized several times over, collected around an achingly honest breakout turn.
A confident debut with a gorgeous central performance.
Chicken is an admirable first offering that gradually sucks you in the more patience you invest. It betters itself as it progresses and showcases a trio of notable performances.
Joe Stephenson's adap of Freddie Machin's play offers a brief respite from miserabilism in the appealing friendship that develops between Richard and new arrival Annabell (Yasmin Paige).
Bolter's widescreen cinematography captures the warmth, loneliness and harsh reality of this disenfranchised world with unobtrusive aplomb.
A grand mixture of dark and light, that's not afraid to discuss tough topics in a refreshing way.
Scott Chambers reprises the role he originated on the London fringe stage and excels in debutant director Joe Stephenson's careful, if not always convincing adaptation of Freddie Machin's 2011 play.
Stephenson elicits lively, empathic performances from his small cast. Chambers is a particular standout, as a character just that tiny bit irritating enough to skirt feeling like the standard-issue movie martyr.
An enjoyable, involving British drama with an impressive turn from newcomer Scott Chambers.
Stephenson builds his film around an astonishing central performance and does not lurch towards melodrama or pity.
You grow to care about the characters and appreciate the film's warm wit and compassion. It is a very promising British debut.
Superbly acted small-scale realist drama, that reminded me both of Kes and The Mudge Boy.
