About the Film:
Set in the downtrodden area of East-End London, PURE is a story about innocence and one family’s struggle to survive.  Ten-year-old Paul (Harry Eden) becomes the caretaker of his family – mother Mel (Molly Parker) and youngest brother Lee (Vinni Hunter) - following the death of his father.  The movie follows his desperate attempts to protect the loving bond of mother and son and save Mel from her drug addiction to heroin.  Worn out by constant abuse from his mother and the continued threat of the local drug dealer, Paul seeks out the affection of Louise (Keira Knightley), a young pregnant waitress.  This is a love story about the unyielding devotion of a young boy who against the odds believes he can save his mother but comes to understand that only Mel can do this for herself.
