Amazing.
2 September 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Wow.. I was just blown away by this BBC drama. Gina was FANTASTIC as Fiona. The cinematography was interesting and different.. just loved evreything about it. It made me cry in the first half hour and I don't usually cry at stuff on TV. So well done! I just love Gina. Her emotion is just portrayed so well.. how she keeps it all inside then just finally lets go and screams and shouts like you want her to at the start. I also think the children were good actors .. it's hard to be a child actor so they did well. And of course the guy who played Simon. He was very good - he made my skin crawl near the end. Brilliant Fantastic stuff. More like this, please.
