Liverpool has an unusual gravity. Witness Davies’s richly detailed portrait of working-class life and you’ll feel the extreme pull of the Liverpudlian past. It’s an homage to (and a forgiveness of) the daily trepidations of growing up in a brute household, ruled over by a stern father (Pete Postlethwaite) and a doting mum (Freda Dowie). But Davies also finds strange comfort in this “distant” and fading abode of the forties and fifties. The sibling bonds, the familiarity of shared diversions, the gathering experience of class and culture, all these things accumulate a weight that is a burden and an embrace.
