Powerful story, outstanding performances.
6 April 2011 | by See all my reviews

This is a very powerful film from start to end, with every scene gripping the viewer. Although the subject matter has been dealt with in films before, this is the most profound, convincing take on it that I have seen. I found myself grimacing and wincing at certain points, and smiling at others.

The acting in particular was excellent. The two leading roles demanded quite a range of emotions. In order to really believe the story, I have to absolutely believe the characters. When there is a broad range of emotion required, actors/actresses can't slip up at all, or the story won't seem real. In this case they nailed it.
