Idris Elba spent most of the time filming in one room or another. The room that the film was filmed in, and his hotel room. The schedule was so tight, and the role so intense, that he barely ever had the time or energy to do anything else but prepare and perform. See more »
did not realize where this was going until the end!
I absolutely loved this movie. It was so suspenseful I was tempted to fast forward, but then I would have missed the nuances. Idris Alba is so talented and very sexy to boot. This movie was full of so many UK actors I love. I love seeing them hide their UK accents. I am going to have to watch it again to figure out what parts were really real. It was one movie well worth the watch. It is too bad this type of movie does not make it to the big screen. I will now be looking for more movies with Iris Alba. He certainly has a talent for playing with a good story. Thank you Netflix for this is the only place I know to find things that don't make it in blockbuster movie theatres.
