Excellent Psychological Drama
20 May 2000 | by (Atlantic City, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a really fine movie with excellent characterizations. I've never seen Patricia Hodge in anything else but in this movie she's the equal of Irons and Kingsley. It's interesting how the movie starts with the very emotional end works it's way back to the innocuous beginnings.
