oscar worthy performances
9 March 2004 | by (birmingham) – See all my reviews

Seeing this little film one night charmed me and moved me its like sitting down to a pub lunch in the country with time on your hands.The striking performances are between Otoole and Ruehl but otoole gives in my estimation a performance that blows away some female oscar winners. Its a short film that will make you reach for a hankie or two but still gives a lot more in such a short time o toole is A LIST in my eyes.
