Psychiatrist Caroline Henshow (Joanne Whalley) takes a position in a new area and befriends an abused woman, a woman whose problems re-ignite issues from her own past.
Joanne Whalley takes to the lead with a certain flourish and as well as being entirely believable in the role keeps you guessing as to quite what she will do next!! It is a pity that she is not on-screen in such an intense role more often.
Breathtaking is a good, solid, English thriller. Many of the locations are suitably squalid and one can certainly sympathies with the motivations of the downtrodden Sandra (Lorraine Pilkington). This is not a classic by any means, but will keep you interested and has a couple of unexpected twists.
