A bag of money literally falls from the sky and lands on Damian (Alex Etel). It’s just the most recent of a series of events that call into question everything he thought he know. He has recently lost his mother, moved into a new house, started a new school, and been visited by saints. He believes the money has come from God, and he knows the money has to be used very quickly because in just a few days England is switching from the old currency to the Euro.

Parents should know that the movie deals with some mature themes, including the loss of a parent. The focus of the plot is stolen money and it raises a number of significent issues that families will want to explore. There is tension and peril and the bad guy threatens the children. Characters smoke (including a saint) and do some social drinking.

Families who see this movie should talk about what they would do if they got a lot of money that didn’t belong to anyone else

    I think it’s interesting that certain things were not included in the review. For instance, Anthony (Lewis McGibbon) offers a girl money to perform services for him. Although we are unsure at this point what he may be paying her for, our notions are confirmed when he states, “I have a nice body.” Another example is the scene where he visits the La Senza website, in which he stares at women in lingerie.
    I believe that many parents would like to know this information, prior to watching this movie with their children.
    Thanks!
