Millions

Now Millions was the business. I only watched this because Danny Trainspotting Boyle directed it, but it turned out to be a cracker. A nice mixture of darkness and light as a child who recently lost his mother finds a bag full of money. There is a real evocation of the magical times of childhood when everything is that little bit more special and your imagination can run riot.

Daisy Donovan was a revelation. From her earlier shows I knew she could act but she puts in a real subtle performance. And for once James Nesbitt didn’t annoy me at all.

I just wish Danny Boyle would make more films. Still his next science fiction one, Sunshine, looks a cracker.
