Set in 1930s Liverpool, Liam tells the story of a family’s struggle to keep things together amidst the ravages of the depression, vividly told from the viewpoint of a seven-year-old boy. Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Stephen Frears and written by the prolific TV and feature film writer Jimmy McGovern, this is a hard-hitting, powerful drama that manages to convey humour and affection.
