    This short drama (40 minutes, cert. 15) received positive reviews in national newspapers (see IMDb taglines), but has not been released on DVD. The original VHS is unavailable at amazon.co.uk.



    User reviews there and IMDb underline the film's importance as an exploration of unhappy childhood.



    Plot Summary:

    "Steve is the smallest eleven-year-old in his class, thinks girls are soppy and prefers painting. He creates an exciting but violent fantasy world of his own, but in reality he is lonely and introspective.



    "Stuart, his best mate, is the most solid thing about a comfortless world where people argue too much - usually about him - and, with studied indifference, both boys establish and re-establish their devotion to each other."



    The film was shot in Stoke-on-Trent where Stephen Bratt, who portrayed 'Steve', was born in 1964. His friend, 'Stuart', was played by Stuart Elliot - apparently his only screen role.



    Roger Lambert explored friendship between boys in another short - FOLLOW YOU FOLLOW ME (1979) - which appears to be Stephen Bratt's last screen appearance.



    In light of title, I WANT TO BE FAMOUS, it would be interesting to know what became of him and Stuart Elliot.



    In 'School movies' thread, I asked, without success, for news of Stephen Bratt.
