Two schoolboy brothers have a week to spend a load of stolen sterling before the UK switches to the euro in this charming comedy drama from director Danny Boyle (
). It's a feel-good fantasy that plays like Boyle's
re-imagined for a family audience. Alex Etel is wonderful as Damian, the angel-faced seven-year-old whose hilarious visitations from saints lead him to believe that the mislaid robbery loot that lands in his lap is actually a gift from God. But while he wants to use the money for worthy causes, his nine-year-old brother, Anthony (Lewis McGibbon), favours entirely personal consumption, leading to a clash of wills that attracts the wrong kind of attention. Boyle handles the material deftly, delivering a quintessentially British morality tale that's sweet but never nauseating. A mix of youthful innocence and sprightly insouciance keeps events skipping along, while James Nesbitt's affectionate supporting performance as the youngsters' widowed father provides emotional balance.
A bag of stolen money falls from the sky, and wide-eyed youngster Damian thinks it is a gift from God. However, his level-headed brother realises they must race against time to spend the loot before the country switches to the Euro and a robber on their tail catches up with them. Comedy drama, starring Alex Etel, Lewis McGibbon, Daisy Donovan and James Nesbitt.
