Okay, here's the synopsis of the one from that first link, apple, and a poster and some wallpapers of it from your second link.  The wallpapers are downsized here, but you can download the original sizes from the second link, and watch a couple of videos from the movie, too.  They're really slow to open, though.  (I'll check out the second movie later.)  Smiley

A turning-point in the life of one boy – and his homeland.

<i>Set against the fall of the socialist Allende government and the installation of the military junta in 1973 Chile, this delicate coming-of-age tale sees two very different boys - one from the privileged suburbs, the other a slum-dweller from a shantytown – become classmates and grow closer, until eventually their friendship is threatened by the intractable forces of revolution - and the rather more complex allure of their classmate Silvana. Like a cross between Peter Weir's Dead Poets’ Society and Bernardo Bertolucci's The Dreamers, this is a poignant and accomplished film, acute to both the joyous immediacy of childhood and the bitter disappointments of adult life.</i>

Set in 1970, the tale of two boys whose friendship crosses the sectarian divide of the Troubles.

<i>Based on Owen McCafferty's acclaimed play, this funny, touching film tells the story of two boys, growing up in a divided Belfast, who share an obsession with the film Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid – one that leads them, first into petty crime, and then on a misconceived escape to safety - in Australia. Executive-produced by Stephen (Billy Elliot) Daldry, co-starring Julie Waters, Adrian Dunbar and Gina McKee, and featuring excellent performances from its two young leads (discovered during open auditions in Ireland), this is a moving story of loyalty, innocence and friendship.</i>


Love,
Sir J

Thanks apple and sir J,
Both those movies look very promising. I've made profiles for them on the database...  although we still need a better quality pic for 'Mickybo and Me'.
