Robert Carlyle wins at the Edinburgh International Film Festival

Scottish actor Robert Carlyle won the PPG Award for Best Performance in a British Film for his role in Summer, with the jury calling it "a flawless performance in a great, uncompromising film, a film that touches the heart." Here's a synopsis of the plot from the production company's website:

Shaun and Daz are vibrant kids, wasted by their experience of education. All they have is their friendship and for Shaun his first love Katy. From the moment Shaun steps into our world he is bound to lose. Labelled as a violent bully he destroys himself and takes Daz with him.

Shaun has twelve years to reflect on an intense summer of love, sex and loyalty. But Daz's imminent death forces Shaun to go on a journey to confront his past. This is the story of a man full of intelligence and promise struggling to reclaim his life.
