An absolutely brilliant British drama that feels pulled right out of real life.

Stunning film! A powerhouse drama fueled brilliant cast and a great script. One of the best indie films I have ever seen. A near perfect film about people who are all connected and must face their "secrets and lies." An extremely low-budget indie film, but this grabs you and never lets go. Brenda Blethyn should have won the Oscar for Best Actress; she gives a devastating, emotional, and stunning performance. A must see!
