Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Safe is exactly what these London homeless youths and anyone associating with them isn't. This bleak, prize-winning drama explores the lives of Gypo and Kaz (Aidan Gillen and Katd Hardie), two twenty-ish outcastes, who raise cash by pretending to be a prostitute and her pimp, mugging anyone foolish enough to fall for their ploy. When they can't get by that way, they reluctantly consent to spend time at homeless shelters, but their disruptive behaviors there don't make them many friends. When they are bored with these options, there's nothing to stop Gypo from plunging a broken bottle into his chest to see if he can't get some free hospital time out of the deal. The raw subect matter and occasional full frontal nudity make this film one to keep the kids away from.
