One Of The Best TV Movies Ever Made
17 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Guilty, a two-part TV movie that features Michael Kitchen,Sean Gallagher, and Caroline Catz. Written by Simon Burke, it offers up an amazing amount of twists and turns and double-backs to its clever, dense script, creating complex characterizations fitted into a rape/murder mystery storyline that actually does deliver on that old cliché: it leaves you guessing right up to the end.

Amoral and ambitious barrister Steven Vey has a drunken moment with his new secretary where his aggression gets out of hand--setting in motion a crazily intricate plot: the traumatized secretary, having given up on any legal recourse, threatens to go to the tabloids with her story. Vey's hitherto unknown son comes to London seeking to meet his real father; after a chance encounter, Vey offers the young man (whom he still doesn't know is his son) a job: to eliminate his problem with the secretary. But the son has, by coincidence, met the secretary and started falling in love with her.

This is an absolutely first-class thriller from the U.K. for it fashions another complex and thoroughly ambiguous drama grafted onto a standard murder mystery framework and then pulls out the stops to with clever twists and double-backs. Michael Kitchen, Sean Gallagher and Caroline Catz are excellent here. One of the best made-for-TV dramas I've seen. It is more of a character study and the complexities of being human.Highly recommended for people who likes good films.
