    Liam makes it his own

    One of the best made-for-TV films I have ever seen - heartwarming, heartbreaking and touching. Ian Hart as the Rasist father is totally superb, but it is little Liam who steals the show. Well scripted, wonderfully acted and a beautifully polished performance by all concerned. 10/10.
