Top notch political drama - still timeless after many years
I'm not sure why the person who graded this a one star is so angry, or what axe they have to grind with the film, but it's best to disregard their review completely, for their drama and hysterics have absolutely no place in IMDb reviews.
I would guess they have a personal issue with the topic of cheating, given their angry one star review.
Clearly, others do not share in their opinion, as the film garnered awards at the 1996 BAFTA ceremonies and the film has a following, given it's incredible performances and beautifully shot scenes.
It's a great film and even viewing it in 2013, it's still up to date. It's a must-see for anyone who loves British political dramas. The acting is top notch and the plot is just...delicious!
10 out of 10 stars for me, but then again, I'm not bitter about being cheated on.
