Sweet Sixteen

Genre: Drama; Starring: Martin Compston, Michelle Abercromby, Michelle Coulter, Annmarie Fulton, Gary McCormack, William Ruane; Director: Ken Loach; Author: Paul Laverty; Release Date Limited: 05/16/2003; Runtime (in minutes): 106; MPAA Rating: R; Distributor: Lions Gate Films

Ken Loach’s grim and empathetic lost-youth drama tells the story of Liam (Martin Compston), a scrappy hero who sells drugs in his bleak Scottish town and dreams of caring for his mum when she gets out of jail. A few too many miseries pile up, but there’s an unpolished power to the performances.
