Turner Prize-nominated artist Richard Billingham touches raw nerves with a feature debut that offers an unflinching evocation of his early family life. Incidents from the past provide a bracing immersion into the lives of Ray (Justin Salinger), the permanently angry Liz (Ella Smith) and their two sons. The vision of squalor and neglect feels like something from the era of Dickens, rather than Thatcher’s Birmingham. Billingham captures all the horror and humanity of his upbringing, and the heart-melting performance from young Joshua Millard Lloyd is outstanding.

A uniquely moving work of self-identification and self-illustration
