Great Film
24 January 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I may be a little bias as my son was in this film, he played the little boy who walks along clattering a stick on the railings....he was only 4 or 5 at the time and now he is 22. The film itself is gripping, with the fabulous Clive Owen, Miranda Richardson and Charles Dance. It was filmed mostly at Croxteth Country Park in Liverpool, which is a great setting with the big house and vast parkland area. I love this film and would love to find a DVD copy as I only have a Video copy at the moment. It was very hard to find and I think they should do a re-release of it so you can all enjoy......look out for my son too! Support our local filmed movies
