A clever little distraction
31 October 2014 | by (Burgess Hill, UK) – See all my reviews

I saw this soon after its original release and would love to see it come out on DVD for Region 2.

It is a low-budget gem: well written, very well acted, with an interesting and surprising storyline.

The film moves steadily without breaking into much of a sweat until the rapid build up to the revelation to the 'reason'.

It is strangely engaging. I had something else to complete urgently but the 90 mins. seemed much more important.

I'd love to see it again. If you get the chance, then do so as you'll enjoy it.

A gem.
