Storyline

After a violent incident in Lucy's public school, her atheist parents Stuart and Alison decide to find her a safe 'traditional' school. The only one they can afford is St. Mary of the Veil, run by nuns whose 'preference' for Catholic families is de facto exclusivity, given the waiting list. So they pose as devout, and get his murky mate Eddie to find them a priest they can 'bribe' for a parish reference, while Lucy is genuinely converted. It works, but when Stuart overhears a dark secret things take a tragic turn. Written by KGF Vissers

An Excellent Drama
29 December 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I don't see a lot of TV and mainly stick to comedy but I have recently got my Daughter into a Secondary School so when I saw it advertised I wanted to see it. It didn't disappoint me. The acting was incredible throughout. It was so realistic. I know several sets of parents who have decided that a Church School would be best for their Child even though they have never practised the faith and some are vehemently against it. This is partly due to the conditions of Schools and the closure of Grammars. Thankfully I have my beliefs and so I wasn't in that position but I can totally sympathise with parents who feel that their only way to get their child into what they view as a good School is to lie. It is actually a compliment to these Schools that parents have gone to this effort to secure a place. One of the best Dramas I have seen, when is it out on DVD?
