High class intense melodrama which had my attention.
Mother loses child and adopts two as replacement; yet the mother and her husband have dark secrets in a house full of them. And on one level this film goes further than child endangerment but into child cruelty and worse.
Excellent photography, generally very good direction with a few blimps near the end.
Super performances from the two female leads which makes the film.
The actress playing the mother is sensationally "bad".
Worthy of a sound: 7/10.
