Gabriel (DERMOT MURPHY) is a chaotic young rock drummer desperate to hide his recent Bipolar diagnosis from his increasingly exasperated band mates. At the therapeutic mixed ability football game he's obliged to attend as part of his treatment Gabriel is spectacularly upended by goalkeeper Christopher (JACOB McCARTHY), an institutionalised 17-year-old with Aspergers Syndrome. Having taken violent revenge, Gabriel faces expulsion - and the prospect of being sectioned - unless he "makes friends" with Christopher. When the isolated and socially-inept young goalkeeper takes this grudging offer of friendship literally, Gabriel finds his footsteps dogged and secrets threatened by an embarrassingly eager and dangerously tactless new disciple.

This is a not supposed to be hard-edged realism, but there are limits to how much wishful thinking we'll allow. An accomplished work nonetheless.

Kelly is fearless in the way he tackles mental illness and his command of comic tone is strong, making this film anything but the traumatic experience it may appear on paper and more like a gentle romcom between two odd and lonely souls.
