wonderfully acted and directed story of people caught in real-life drama
11 December 1998 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is not the stuff of soap-operas but the sort of conundrums that real people face in real life. A testament to the ensemble and director for the powerful story-telling of fallible characters trying to cope but not quite succeeding.
