Jamie, a teenager having a hard time at the local comprehensive, falls for neighbour Ste, who himself is on the receiving end from his ex-boxer dad. Serviceable adaptation of Jonathan Harvey's hit play. First-timer Macdonald's direction is unflashy, but attuned to the inner lives of these motley individuals, and the cast work wonders.
