R | | Drama, Romance
Two thirtysomethings, unemployed former alcoholic Joe and community health worker Sarah, start a romantic relationship in the one of the toughest Glasgow neighbourhoods.
The Scots dialect used means that the film is often shown with subtitles in North America to be made intelligible to a wider audience.
Get out of my way! Leave me!
Joe Kavanagh: No. No. No, calm down. Just calm down.
Sarah Downie: Are you gonna hit me too, Joe?
The reflection of the boom microphone is visible in the television set when Sarah is talking with Sabine at the school.
