Very good, better than I was expecting. It's about a small mining town in Wales. The last coal pit has just closed, but the town is still recovering from a terrible accident a generation back. A boy moves there to stay with his Gran and gets to know Ianto Jenkins the beggar, who tells stories to the people in the cinema queue in exchange for toffees. ( )
