| Keir Gilchrist great
Snit (Keir Gilchrist) escapes from a brutal reformatory hospital. He returns home to find his unstable Aunt Matilda (Gabrielle Rose). His family is the poor outcasts. The town had put Snit away and Kane (John Pyper-Ferguson) tries to drive him away. With his bitter hateful friend Johnny Swift (Alexander De Jordy), they operate a moonshine still. Robin (Alexia Fast) is taken with Snit.

Keir Gilchrist is great but the story needs some expositions. It probably needs to explain why Snit was locked up in the reformatory in the first place. It would be great to have the time and the place. The production quality is more or less TV level but it's filmed very nicely. The vast hillscapes look beautifully bleak. Johnny Swift could be a great character if his dialog is a little better written. Kane's motivations are a bit confused. This could be a great little indie especially with the interesting cast assembled here if it's put together more competently.
