The War Zone HELP and TRIBUTE Page
A Film by Tim Roth

My main idea of creating this page was not only to pay tribute to a remarkable, and very powerful movie - but, to also provide links and resources for those who have survived child abuse or especially, those still needing help.  I'm not an expert, nor have I lived through the experiences portrayed in the film, I am just someone who was deeply moved by the film and just trying to make a small difference.  Also I owe a big thanks to the people who contributed to this page and cheered me along in it's progress - without you, it couldn't have been created as it was.
Thank you so much!!  Kim



directed by Tim Roth
screenplay and original book by Alexander Stuart
music by Simon Boswell

This film is available for sale or rental on DVD or VHS

Credited cast overview:
Lara Belmont ....  Jessie
Freddie Cunliffe ....  Tom
Ray Winstone ....  Dad
Tilda Swinton ....  Mum
Annabelle Apsion ....  Nurse
Kate Ashfield ....  Lucy
Colin Farrell (I) ....  Nick
Aisling O'Sullivan ....  Carol
Megan Thorp ....  Baby Alice
Kim Wall (II) ....  Barman

For fifteen-year old Tom (Cunliffe), the war zone is at the heart of his seemingly happy middle-class family. Nothing can prepare him for the
terrible secret that binds his father (Winstone) and his seventeen-year-old sister Jessie (Belmont). Isolated, confused and consumed by adolescent
anger, Tom is determined to reveal the truth.

Song from 'Nebraska'

Last night I dreamed that I was a child
Out where the pines grow wild and tall
I was trying to make it home through the forest
Before the darkness falls

I heard the wind rustling through the trees
And ghostly voices rose from the fields
I ran with my heart pounding down that broken path
With the devil snappin' at my heels

I broke through the trees, and there in the night
My father's house stood shining hard and bright
The branches and brambles tore my clothes and scratched my arms
But I ran till I fell, shaking in his arms

I awoke and I imagined the hard things that pulled us apart
Will never again, sir, tear us from each other's hearts
I got dressed, and to that house I did ride
From out on the road, I could see its windows shining in light

I walked up the steps and stood on the porch
A woman I didn't recognize came and spoke to me through a chained door
I told her my story, and who I'd come for
She said "I'm sorry, son, but no one by that name lives here anymore"

My father's house shines hard and bright
It stands like a beacon calling me in the night
Calling and calling, so cold and alone
Shining 'cross this dark highway where our sins lie unatoned
