The Young Offenders (2017) – A Revisited Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Every so often you find a gem of a film that you’ve never heard of.  The Young Offenders is that film.  Stacked full of charm wit and invention this low budget tale of two petty criminals on the look out for a major score has more heart and wit than most of Hollywood’s output in the last few years combined.  Winning performances, clever direction and a tight script make this a must watch.
