One for Rachael Stirling fans only
12 May 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

It's hard to know what's more annoying about this made-for-TV film - the extremely silly plot or the predictable, formulaic characters. John Hurt's talents are utterly wasted. However, the lovely Rachael Stirling shines through with her usual charm and charisma, and her fans won't be disappointed.
