“A thoroughly welcome alternative to standard coming-of-age fare.” ~AroVideo

Aroview: Two 12-year-old Irish runaways escape their bleak suburban existence and head to Dublin in this grim yet soulful adventure.

Along the way they meet street-smart characters of all stripes, including a dredger captain, an African prostitute and a Polish busker, and discover the music of Bob Dylan, whose carefree but gritty folk tunes feature appropriately throughout. A quietly uplifting fable, with the unusual combination of magical touches and working-class realism providing a thoroughly welcome alternative to standard coming-of-age fare.
