After traveling to London to check on their missing children in the wake of the 2005 terror attack on the city, two strangers come to discover their respective children had been living together at the time of the attacks. Written by
It's July 7, 2005. There is a terrorist bus bombing in London. Widower Elisabeth Sommers (Brenda Blethyn) can't contact her daughter Jane. She travels to London to search for her. African Muslim Ousmane (Sotigui Kouyaté) arrives from France to look for his son Ali. He has not seen him since he was six.
Essentially, the story is mostly known from the start. There is a little reveal but it's not that compelling. The movie has a solid sense of the people of the city. Blethyn is once again the old close-minded woman. It's a tired character that she needs to modify. It's getting repetitive. Otherwise, the acting is solid. The movie is slow because the ending is inevitable. It does give a realistic portrayal of modern London. As a story, it is very predictable.
