This isn’t just a poignant little film about a homeless man and the boy who befriends him: it’s a fundraiser for homeless causes in the U.K. If you’re in the U.K., you can
donate to the Stanley fund by texting STANLEY2, 3 OR 6 to 70300 to give £2, £3 OR £6. The donation will help the homeless to turn their lives around. Donations will be deducted from the mobile phone bill plus your standard network rate for one text message. 100% of the donation will go to homeless charities – Anchor House and The Big Issue Foundation.
That’s direct from the folks involved in the film. More at the official site.
The film is directed by Lucy Tcherniak and stars Oliver Litondo, who recently won Best Actor at the 11th Annual Movies for Grownups Awards Gala for his performance in The First Grader (which I really must review soon).
