Bernard Hare’s popular memoir about growing up on an East Leeds estate is vividly brought to the screen for the first time by Candida Brady. Eleven-year old Urban Grimshaw (Fraser Kelly) is Britain’s most runaway child, he’s even been on TV’s Crimewatch. His mother Greta (Anna Friel) is a junkie and his father might as well be dead. He can’t read or write, and he doesn’t go to school. His average day is spent sitting round a bonfire with his mates smoking drugs and stealing cars. When he meets his mother’s new friend Chop (Richard Armitage), a disillusioned ex-social worker also living on society’s margins, on one of Leeds’ roughest estates, the two become firm friends.
