Plot: Two kids, Dylan and Kylie, run away from home at Christmas and spend a night of magic and terror on the streets of inner-city Dublin

Verdict: Yet another terrific, no-budget drama from Dubliner Daly, Kisses is a simple story about two working class Dublin kids who temporarily escape their drab domestic lives and head into the city centre on a barge. Beautifully shot, impressively unsentimental and featuring knockout performances from its two young leads, Kelly O'Neill from Stoneybatter and Crumlin's Shane Curry.
