So close to life
27 June 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I liked this comment as it appreciated the fact it was well acted and true to life. To many people this would have seemed a far fetched tale but I experienced a horrific tale of this nature, adult mental brutality and conned by my own son with the advice and backing of a "Mrs Geck". My daughter and I watched it at the same time, I phone her and said have a look and tell me what you think, she immediately said "Bitch Anne" and it was so true to her character that when I do actually finish the script which is proving very painful to write, I want Kirsty to play her. My case raised much publicity 3 days at court and all the media, TV, News etc., Kathryn Knight did an excellent feature in the Daily Mail, but originally my own doctor did not believe me....... Kirsty is the person,,,,well acted. Well produced
