Davies‘s stunningly photographed, heartbreakingly performed, and achingly beautiful autobiographical film, an impressionistic look at the life of a quiet, 11-year-old Liverpudlian, contrasting the glamour of Hollywood cinema with the bleak, grey world of 1950s Liverpool, is nothing less than a masterpiece.
