Excerpts from reviews

Mark Wareham’s stellar photography often lurks in dimly lit locales, providing genuine shocks and warm summer moments in equal measure. Selling this conceit [?] are the wonderful characters that populateĀ Corrigan [sic: he means Corrigin], each with their own concealed truths. Toni Collete’s [sic] mother character is a villain of sorts, at least from the perspective of young Charlie, but her performance (like all things in a young boy’s mind) is magnified. Similarly, Hugo Weaving looms large asĀ Mad Jack Lionel, the ultimate small-town outsider whose legend is bigger than his tragic past. Richard Gray, thereelbits.com.
