Gripping and sensitively handled drama
17 July 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Being a huge fan of John Thaw, We'll Support You Evermore had me interested from the start; expectations were high and they were met. We'll Support You Evermore is well-made, the photography has a beautiful and gritty look that matches the tone more than appropriately and the Northern Ireland scenery is striking and provides a great atmosphere as well. The writing is tightly structured and thought-provoking, allowing us to be engrossed in the mystery parts while leaving us room to engage with the characters. It also doesn't feel overwrought, like it could easily have done. The story is gripping and suspenseful with revelations that are likely to take one by surprise, nothing predictable here, it too is emotional without being over-sentimalised. The subject matter is a very difficult one, and it was handled remarkably sensitively in We'll Support You Evermore. The drama is paced well, is tautly directed and the characters all serve some of kind of purpose to the story and are interesting, it was easy to sympathise with Geoff as losing a son and wanting answers is something that many people would have no problem empathising with. We'll Support You Evermore is very well-acted by the supporting cast and has a simply brilliant lead performance from Thaw(with no bias intended), he displays many emotions that feels real always and never forced and we really care for Geoff here. All in all, a gripping drama that is sensitively handled, atmospherically filmed and well-written and acted, it's a shame that it's not that well-known. 10/10 Bethany Cox
