    This film was on Sky tonight at 2 O'Clock in the morning. It's just finished at 10 to 4 and I couldn't go to bed until the end. It's subtle humour raises a smile but, it's the acting that holds you to the end. I then had to check it out on the net so all I can say is, it needs to be watched. Perhaps it strikes a chord for some unknown reason as the story is close to the human heart and, you wonder what you would do in any one of the characters positions. Had me well and truly gripped and there aren't many films I can say that about. I only half recognised one of the actors yet I stayed up to stupid in the morning to watch it. Fell in love with Shirley Henderson as an actress, adored young Lisa McKinlay, hated Jamie Sives then changed my mind, wished I could be as brave as Adrian Rawlins. I'm out to buy the DVD tomorrow and force the rest of the family to watch it! Why didn't I hear about this film before? I am now going to keep abreast of all the new films being released. Thank you to all who took part in this movie. Full Review »
