I really loved this film! I was watching it from about 12:40 midnight and I was falling asleep, but i had to watch it to the end. It highlights really well the reasons why some people seem crazy and shows how we should look for reasons rather than just scorn or punish people. Raw, but tender passionate, painful, blissful. It had all of these and really captured the mental instability of both characters through brilliant filming.
The acting was superb. Ben Whislaw was excellent as Tom, really getting underneath the skin of the character, and Jenna Harrison also gave an excellent debut performance, making the story so real and so passionate. Well done!
