I was quite shocked to see how damn good this was especially considering Made forTV movies are made for TV for a reason, they suck! Antonia Bird's quite fast moving, yet thoroughly intriguing direction kept me on the edge of my seat through some quite dramatic but not graphic molestation sequences. Child abuse seems to be quite a fashion in recent hollywood, and it's good to see the BBC catching on and ripping them off!
Great performances from Steve Mackintosh as Davey as a grown up, who was pretty sweet in Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels! Also a damn fine performance from Alun Evans, who played Gareth, the kid who falls down on his knees and cries like a girl!
