What else is there? Ciaran Hinds is extraordinary, again. This story is complex, difficult, and compassionate. The screenplay is outstanding. This movie moved me. All the performances were great, including the ones by the children.
Amanda Root and the actress who played Florrie wrench my heart.
Ciaran Hinds is the best actor working today. Yet another outstanding performance.
See it and open your heart.
