Ultimately grim, Liam is ripe in humanity --and even comedy.
80
Liam is mostly an emotionally devastating chronicle of the disintegration of a family. The entire cast is superb, but Frears has cast two screen naturals in the lead roles.

Frears makes every note count for a lot in this beautifully gauged microcosm of big emotions expressed in small gestures.
